Wibu-Systems and Winbond at Embedded World to represent the Trusted Computing Group

Karlsruhe, Germany – Trusted Computing Group, a not-for-profit organization that develops, defines and promotes open, vendor-neutral, global industry standards, supportive of a hardware-based root of trust, for interoperable trusted computing platforms, in partnership with OpenSystems Media, will demonstrate and discuss secure embedded and IoT solutions at Embedded World 2018 at booth 3A-507, February 27 – March 1.

The program that TCG has defined with its members Wibu-Systems and Winbond includes daily live demonstrations on how to protect IoT and embedded devices and data using several TCG specifications implemented for security purposes, and will be closed by the lecture of Dr. Florian Schreiner, IT Security and Platform Security Specialist of Infineon Technologies, who will present “TPM 2.0 for Enhanced Security in Software Updates of Industrial Systems” on March 1, 2018, 2:30 to 3:00 pm.

On February 28th and March 1st, 1 to 3 pm, Wibu-Systems will show license management with Trusted Platform Modules (TPM) powered by CodeMeter. The data about technical know-how theft has always been alarming, but the Internet of Things is bringing a new dimension to this phenomenon: counterfeiting, reverse engineering, tampering, and cyberattacks are skyrocketing, even in a Trusted Computing environment. As the value in the supply chain is being transferred from hardware to software, software protection becomes the vital backbone of any mature cyber security strategy. In particular, hardware secure elements (like industrial grade dongles, memory cards, TPMs, or ASICs) in the target system offer a secure repository where encrypted code keys can be safely stored. By combining endpoint security with skillfully designed licensing models integrated with back office systems, new revenue streams are created for any software-powered business. In the new economy led by Industry 4.0, the secure upgradability and updatability of system features and functionalities open the doors for a shorter time to market, adaptive process optimization, and global competitiveness.

Winbond’s demo will present an IoT node running both authentic code and non-authentic (compromised) code. In the demo, a “cloud” server gets the right Compound Device Identifier (CDI, as defined in TCG Device Identity Composition Engine specification) with authentic data from the authentic system and the wrong CDI along with fake data from the compromised system. The demo will show that the cloud server can use this to identify a compromised system.
