Firmware updates protected against fakes

The already very secure and comfortable SEVENSTAX firmware update was enhanced by another signature process with Standard X.509 certificates. This gives it another protection on top of the current ones.

Unlike usual signature processes, the SEVENSTAX firmware update does not need to be fully installed on the embedded system to validate if it’s an original. Along with the independent control of individual modules the loading time can be drastically reduced in case of an error. The signature process can be used for SEVENSTAX firmware updates through the cloud, manually through the browser and the smartphone app. On top of that, it can also be integrated alongside updates in the production and service.
