We have an project where we need to protect the rights of digital media that will form part of a workflow. Looking for some advice on how best to tackle this.
What we want to do is build Linux VM's with pre-configured software. We give the VDI / VHD to the developer which they then load with a Player using their own workstations as a host.
The VM's are locked down - internet access but only to a specified domain / server.
Disable all other means of getting data off the machine - only way for data to move is over the network to the specified domain / IP.
No access to override the above.
Just confirming that the above is possible and relatively straight forward - what would be the best Linux distribution for this be?
Are there solutions out there already we can build on.
On the VM side - some of the software has activation keys that are bound to a MAC address. Is there a way for the software on the VM to see the MAC address of the host instead of the Virtual NIC - so that the software key still works?
VM image one can open as a disk image, there is nothing in the world that can prevent it.
What about VPN gateway to your application? Then you have indirect user identification even havind lax security
