Spices.Fortress 1.0.0 An Excellent C# 2.0 Code Protec...

Distributing and promoting commercial applications as trial and evaluation versions is highly important for any serious developer. However, the process of delivering trial and full versions of the program may be somewhat problematic. If the measures taken to limit the functionality of the full version are not serious enough, it can make way for unauthorized access and illegal use of your program.

You might be searching for an easy way to restrict the functionality of your C# 2. 0 Windows Forms application and to create reliably protected demo and trial versions. If so, look no further. Spices. Fortress: an excellent tool that will become the sentinel of your trial functionality and provide your valid customers with an easy way to unlock the application to gain access to all of its functions!

Spices. Fortress has the following distinct advantages:

- protection of . NET applications, but not their obfuscation

- protection of the data needed to run the application, not the code itself

- use of native (but characteristic of C#) means only

- the protected executable is natively compiled by C# (hence no compatibility problems)

- no external processing of C#-produced protected executables

- the Key is not checked but is used to restore the protected functionality

- each Key contains personal data, therefore each Key may be easily identified and verified

The fundamental difference between Spices. Fortress and conventional code protection tools is that it protects only the data needed to run the application, but not the code itself. This goal is reached by using different sets of event handlers for trial and full versions of the same application. Once protected by Spices. Fortress, applications select the necessary set based on the presence of a valid Fortress Key legally obtained from the developers along with a license.

Try Spices. Fortress in action and rest assured that not a single bit of your protected C# 2. 0 application will be compromised.

Rock-solid source code protection

Development of a commercial application never stops when the last line of code has been written. Delivering the product to potential clients is highly important as well. Most programs are distributed as trial or evaluation versions. Nonetheless, weak and vulnerable protection mechanisms may jeopardize the security of your source code and enable competitors or hackers get access to the full functionality of your application, thus stultifying your efforts and time invested into development. The choice of the right protection tool that will satisfy your specific needs may be anything but easy. If you are looking for a rock-stable, reliable and elegant code protection solution, make sure not to miss “ Spices. Fortress” .

May 16, 2007: 9Rays. Net is glad to announce the release of Spices. Fortress.

Spices. Fortress for C# 2. 0 is a protection tool (not an obfuscator) for C# 2. 0 applications.
The goal of Spices. Fortress is to protect C# applications from unauthorized use by limiting the functionality of evaluation or trial versions. Applications protected by Spices. Fortress work as evaluation versions, but as soon as they are unlocked with a secure Fortress Key, they start operating as fully functional versions. It should be noted that Spices. Fortress does not protect . NET class libraries, but . NET Windows Forms applications only.

Spices. Fortress advantages

- protection of . NET applications, not their obfuscation;
- use of only native (but characteristic of C#) means;


Spices. Fortress does not in any way obfuscate, but protects . NET applications.

When protecting applications, Spices. Fortress uses only native C# means, i. e. no external processing of C#-produced executables takes place. It is important that it is not the code, but the data needed to run the application is protected. In . NET Windows Forms applications data is a link between events and event handlers. The difference between the trial and the registered versions is based on the use of different event handlers for trial and registered versions of the protected application. The trial version uses one set of event handlers, whereas the registered version uses another one.

Spices. Fortress protects the forms of C# projects on the source level, which means that Spices. Fortress temporarily modifies the source code and then, after recompilation, the application is protected.

When applied, Spices. Fortress modifies the source code of the form in such a manner that after re-compiling each event protected by Spices. Fortress has no event handler assigned. When a protected application is started, the trial event handlers are assigned to corresponding events. If a valid Fortress Key is found, registered event handlers replace the trial ones. The protected application does not use any checking routines to choose which set of event handlers to use. Instead, it uses the data contained in the Fortress Resource and the Fortress Key to assign registered event handlers to corresponding events. To be protected by Spices. Fortress, a C# form must contain components that have events with assigned event handlers.
The personal data stored in each Fortress Key allows to easily identify each valid Fortress Key.

In a nutshell, Spices. Fortress is an elegant, intuitive and affordable solution for developers seeking a better way to protect their products from unwanted intrusion and willing to have a simple, yet efficient mechanism of limiting the functionality of trial and evaluation versions of their software.

Future versions of Spices. Fortress will also support VB. NET projects.
