Wibu-Systems has extended the reach of its CodeMeter software protection and licensing platform into MVTec's product portfolio. MVTec's HALCON and MERLIC software products enable users to build sophisticated machine vision solutions across multiple applications. With CodeMeter, MVTec employed customized and branded hardware secure elements (CmDongles) and software-based licenses (CmActLicenses) to protect the know-how associated with their digital assets.
The licenses are created, delivered, and managed via CodeMeter License Central, and the end users activate them via a web portal or WebDepot, and store them either in the physical CmDongle or the secure CmActLicense file bound to the fingerprint of their machine. Most recently, MVTec also chose to adopt the CodeMeter technology for HALCON, combining software licenses with a dongle as a proof of identity.
