   You have the software called ColdFusion Encryptor. But the problem is you have a Decryptor for this.

   Hope you have got what I mean to say.

Thanks & Regards

you can encrypt .cfm's so that when you distribute your application no one can see the source.. but the WEB is a public MEDIUM so your HTML will always show.

CF is a server side language so NONE of your CF code will be displayed in the browser's viewsource option.

here is code to recursive encrypt your entire source code.. if you decide to distribute it:
