Protecting files sent to clients
Posted on 2016-08-03
My team developed an interactive depiction of a network map for my client. It is written in JScript. Data (network equipment, IP addresses, contact information, physical addresses, etc.) was fed into the database. When you open the file, a network diagram appears, and when you click on the icons you can drill down to the particulars of that piece of equipment. For example, click on one or the routers and it drills down to its version, IP address, contact info, etc. Click on the IP address and it gives you more information about the local IP subnet, etc...
I didn't write it and know very little about it.
When I send the file to my client or to another party, I can zip it and password protect it. I send the password separately.
Once it is opened however, all the raw code is available to look at. My question... Can I further password protect the raw JScript files that are extracted so that my client nor anybody else can see the raw files and be able to reverse engineer it and develop it themselves?
Basically I'm talking about giving the recipient the password to open and view the interactive network map, but hide the actual scripts.
