No code is unbreakable, but .NET IL is particularly susceptible to reverse engineering. Protection of your code and IP is of vital interest to you as a company, to your investors and to your customers who want to ensure they are using a legitimate product and can remain compliant.
Now you can protect your software from theft, casual piracy, reverse engineering, tampering and misuse with the strongest .NET code protection available. Using a patented code transformation technology that goes beyond traditional obfuscation and encryption techniques, Code Protector removes the need for hardware keys, while increased code integrity can also protect against viruses and malware.
Code Protector’s unique approach to Microsoft® .NET code protection is based on a one–way, random transformation of an assembly’s MSIL (Microsoft Intermediary Language) – which is easy to reverse engineer - into a unique SEEL (Secure Execution Environment Language) – which is not. Each transform is unique and the resultant SEEL can only be extracted and processed by a corresponding Secure Execution Environment (SEE), enabling the transformed code to run within the native .NET Framework at runtime. The protected execution environment is compiled into the application binaries, making it a permanent and integral part of the application.
Each transformation of MSIL into a unique SEEL is governed by a Permutation package, containing the random MSIL to SEEL mapping and the corresponding SEE.
Each Permutation is unique and you can generate multiple permutations to ensure each product is uniquely protected. It is even possible to regenerate the permutation per release to ensure each assembly is uniquely transformed.
This selective, one-way code transformation mechanism provides a greater level of protection for highly sensitive intellectual property. Because transformed code is practically unreadable, there is minimal risk of in-memory code compromise on client machines.
Code Protector transforms selected MSILs into SEELs (Secure Execution Environment Languages), which are exceptionally difficult to reverse-engineer
