Press Conference: Wibu-Systems and FLECS Technologies Pioneer Seamless Integration of Licensing and Protection in Automation App Stores

For journalists only! – Join us for an insightful discussion as Wibu-Systems and Flecs Technologies unveil their groundbreaking collaboration, pioneering seamless integration of licensing and protection in automation app stores.

In recent years, what was once considered a trend has now become the gold standard in the automation industry: the use of standard hardware and operating systems. It is evident that virtual layers like Docker are making their way into these standards, opening up immense possibilities for interoperability between applications (apps) and devices (devices). These advancements form a cornerstone for the success of automation solution app stores. However, with these progressions come challenges in terms of app licensing and intellectual property protection.

Wibu-Systems' established solution, CodeMeter, has successfully addressed and resolved these challenges for over 20 years. In collaboration with Flecs Technologies, we have laid the foundation for app providers to seamlessly upload their software to the Flecs Technologies store while integrating protection and licensing simultaneously. Discover more about the provider's process and the successful resolution of challenges posed by virtual environments.

What does Artificial Intelligence have to do with Security?

Join Dr. Carmen Kempka, our Director of Corporate Technologies, in Hall 8, Booth D17, on April 24 at 1:50 pm, as she delves into a critical and much-discussed issue. With the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), their applications have significantly expanded into sectors where security is paramount, including medical technology, the automotive industry, and quality assurance processes. The potential risks of AI-targeted attacks are profound: manipulated or incorrect quality assessments of components could lead to safety standards being compromised. Moreover, the safeguarding of intellectual property inherent in trained models and the confidentiality of sensitive training data are of utmost importance. This talk will explore potential vulnerabilities within the machine learning lifecycle and propose comprehensive strategies to secure these systems against threats.
