Wibu-Systems joins Open Source Automation Development Lab

Wibu-Systems has joined OSADL, the Open Source Automation Development Lab, a cooperative dedicated to providing everything needed to use open source software in industrial products.

OSADL coordinates the development and funding of open source projects on behalf of its members, who enjoy many benefits, including quality assurance, software development, technology support, legal compliance, marketing, training, and above all support in licensing in the form of legal support through the OSADL general counsel, auditing, and certification. The success of OSADL can be attributed to its core concept: the proprietary information of its members stays confidential, and only the bits that everyone needs and that do not play a role in the competition among them are developed and provided in open collaboration.

Wibu-Systems envisages multiple fronts of cooperation with OSADL:

With almost three decades in the service of state-of-the-art software protection, licensing, and security techniques, the company can share its wealth of knowledge with the developing network of OSADL. Best practices in the use of CodeMeter, its flagship technology, against counterfeiting, reverse engineering, and tampering, and for versatile license lifecycle management will help monetize the know-how of the entire OSADL community.

Wibu-Systems also counts on the expertise of the OSADL ecosystem to raise the quality of its own code. A dedicated test center, the OSADL QA farm, continuously monitors a large variety of variables of far more than hundred systems to obtain maximum runtime stability. The QA tests include early recognition of an erroneous behavior of the Linux kernel, memory leaks, driver misbehavior, and unsatisfying worst-case latencies on a wide bandwidth of products of various manufacturers with different architectures (x86, ARM, PowerPC, MIPS), bit widths (32, 64 bit), and processor topologies (from single up to 32-core).
