X5 bitworker

X-Net Technology GmbH has developed X5 to protect software of products and know how of companies producing this software and to secure the production of data carrier containing these software components. X5 solutions provide secure, simple and error-free recording of customised mass data in production environments and support the implementation of overall security strategies for products complying with principles of Internet of Things (IoT) to meet future requirements.

X5 bitworker overviewIncreasing digitalisation enables the settling of new features, the satisfying of (individual) customer needs and competitive advantages provided by the integrated software on the one hand. On the other hand, challenges like remote support over the product life cycle, updates and upgrades of the products have to be considered. Manipulation, reproduction, misuse of remote support or unintentional access of the customer not only cause fault but may turn into threats to existence. Security strategies that consider the production lines as well as the whole life cycle of products over long term periods are needed.

X5 is designed to handle the complex requirements of producing companies and considers secured communication, authentication and encryption. Combination of software and hardware components allow individualisation of security strategies and enable the production of 1:1 copies in-line or outsourced to third party manufacturers and further on the integration of secure life cycle management strategies.

X5 addresses producing companies

  • needing secure solutions to integrate software with high added value in a product
  • wanting to outsource the recording and assembling of data carrier or
  • using online connections to communicate with a product, update it or activate further functionalities.


X5 bitworker focusses the development of the market entry strategy to introduce X5 in the European central region.
