Are you aware that you might be shipping your source code with your .NET dll or exe? A new tool included in Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET 2003 can help you make sure that does not happen. The .NET platform realizes Microsoft's vision for the next paradigm in Windows computing: multiple programming languages interacting harmoniously, sharing an enriched object-based framework, and executed by a Common Language Runtime (CLR). This architecture provides an unprecedented degree of power and flexibility. Unfortunately, that flexible design inherently produces a problem for those wishing to hide their program's intellectual property. Programs in the .NET Framework are easy to reverse engineer. This is not in any way a fault in the design of .NET; it is simply a reality of modern, intermediate-compiled languages (Java suffers from this problem too). Both Java and .NET us... (more)

DashO-Pro by preEmptive Solutions

I remember how I first got into Java. A friend called my attention to these neat little mini applications that could be easily embedded into HTML files. These applets provided a quick way to jazz up even the most mundane Web pages. She showed me some UseNet groups that contained huge libraries of these applets. I soon learned how to go into their code and change (dare I use the word "hack"?) them to fit my needs. Those applets were nobody's property; they were just there for the taking. Some people would come up with clever ways of making them run more efficiently, and would post their findings for all to use. When working with pubic archives, this is all well and good. The problem is many people learned how to hack Java applications that were not public domain. They would download applications, decompile the source and hack it to look like their own. Today's compl... (more)

Obfuscation for .NET Environment and Java Identified as a Cyberthreat Counter Measure

PreEmptive Solutions, suppliers of the leading Enterprise Obfuscation Solution for the Microsoft .NET environment and Java, announced that Gartner Inc. has included obfuscation as part of their recommended strategy to reduce the risk of application vulnerability probing and Intellectual Property (IP) theft.

"the use of interpreted languages, such as Java and managed .NET code, makes reverse compilation a relatively simple task, providing the hacker the ability to steal intellectual property (IP) or look for security vulnerabilities," in "Hype Cycle for Cyberthreats, 2006", September 2006, Neil MacDonald; Amrit Williams, et al. Gartner recommendations include "If you have IP embedded in your software applications that are distributed externally to your enterprise, use code obfuscation, encryption and randomization products to protect deployed...
