Solution for Device Without USB Port
In some industries, there are specific equipments do not have common USB port which made it difficult to use dongles to protect device management software and/or applications. Under this condition, an embedded chip can offer protection for the management software and applications as a dongle. Developers can insert an embedded chip into the circuit boards of these equipments to get software protection, as a dongle attached to the equipment all the time.
Code Port is an evolutionary technique of transferring key codesof protected software to a dongle under secure communication.
When a corresponding EL device is plugged, the protected application will callspecific API functions to run key codes and data stored in the dongle andreturn legal results, so as to complete the full operation of the protectedapplication. As those code and data stored in the dongle do not have copies atthe PC end, malicious crackers are unable to get algorithms or data by physicalinterception.
Open Platform to Customize
Based on code-porttechnology, EL products provide a high-level customizable platform fordevelopers to design and implement security solution. EL series supports allkinds of security methods and enable security solution and licensing modules seamlessly combined withbusiness mode.
· Time and Cost Saving
Instead of recyclinghardware dongles, software developers can conduct a comprehensive softwareupdate, modify or even completely change the encryption software solution to worldwideend-users via Internet based on secure remote control technology.
· Reduce Risks
The remote updatingprocess is reliable and secure. By avoiding recycle and resend process, the risksof dongle lost and/or be pirated in logistic chain have been greatly reduced.
As distinguished from conventional chip technology, the Elite ELsmart card chip contains a high performance cryptographic algorithm acceleratoror coprocessor. A smart card chip of this nature can be viewed as a highly integratedmini PC.
· Automatic Self-lockingMechanism
The access to the chip is protected by PIN, and the maximumre-tries is pre-set by software developers. For instance, under a dictionaryattack, once re-tries exceed the pre-set value, the chip will trigger off aself-locking mechanism and block all external running operations.
· Built-in Timer.
Timer is a useful component for software protection that appliesto time-limited usage and anti-tracking. EL has a built-in timer lasting morethan 10 hours that sustains much longer than similar products of competitors.
· Hardware Random NumberGenerator (White Noise Technology)
The smart card chip produces a high security random number,enabling the implementation of more secure solutions.
· Global Unique Serial Number
A global unique serial number which cannot be altered orrewritten is assigned to a smart card chip only. This puts an end to the piracyand enables the effective management on the released chips. Furthermore, bycooperating with Senselock, software developers are able to gain a unique“Client ID, which in effect addresses the critical issue of the reproduced andfraudulent dongle.
