Embedded Computing Design has announced that Wibu-Systems won a coveted Best in Show Award at the Smart Production Solutions (SPS) conference in Nuremberg, Germany. The award is for Wibu-Systems’ CodeMeter Certificate Vault, a hardware-based key storage provider for PKCS#11, Microsoft CNG, and OpenSSL certificates.
Launched earlier this year, it has been designed to allow the secure storage and use of the keys for TLS certificates or OPC UA instances. The technology takes away the complexity of requesting, updating, and importing certificates by applying the same creation, management, and rollout workflows that are already typical in license and entitlement management.
CodeMeter Certificate Vault stores the certificates in a tamperproof smart card chip embedded in a hardware secure element (dongle), the same container that holds the cryptographic keys associated with secure software licenses.
Wibu-Systems was one of four companies to be awarded Best in Show, along with Laird Connectivity, Moxa, and Syslogic.
