There is no 100% secure solution! If I really want, I go to someone who has a 
legal release of a commercial program, copy his Configuration in a virtual 
machine (even with the mac of an netcard, ...) and have all time I want to 
crack the program. 

Is it really our work to create a bible more secure than the commercial ones? 
I think a personal key solution is secure enough (and as much secure than all 
bible-programs I know).

In an Open-Source solution, all distributors of commercial bible-modules have 
the possibility to check the security of the programs and even create their 
own filters.
