What is the best way to secure desktop software?
Posted on 2008-11-11
My company created a desktop application that will be licensed to other companies, on a per user basis. Does anyone have any ideas on how to set up security on this so that the user can't copy it, and send it to other people? And also so that I can verify login creditials.
Here are some ideas I have heard, but don't really know anything about them:
1. Distribute thumb drives to each user that the user must have to login to the software
2. We have a website, so somehow connecting the application to check login credintials through the website.
Any other ideas, or help with the ones listed above, would be greatly appreciated.
