Wibu-Systems will show how manufacturers can protect their embedded software from tampering. The ground principle is based on the secure boot mechanism integrated in CodeMeter technology, which companies can start evaluating with the starter kit for the Raspberry Pi.
Digital signatures and certificates ensure the integrity of embedded software. This allows for properly signed applications only to run. A signature is considered valid when the program comes from a legitimate publisher who owns the matching private key for signing, and when it has not been altered. In the event of software tampering or malware presence, the signature will be detected as invalid, thus preventing the execution of the application.
