View Full Version : Security keys

Does anyone have some hints on how to handle security keys in a commercial
application? You know how when you install an application it will usually
have a key code on the CD-ROM case that you have to enter which I assume
has embedded various information about your installation (version,
features, serial number, ...) but in an encrypted form. I would like to
add this to our software but can't figure out how to generate those keys.
Are there commercial companies with products that do this or do I need to
write something myself?

Any pointers to companies that have software to do this or ideas on how to
do it myself would be appreciated!
