[sword-devel] Module protection/encryption
Tue, 04 Feb 2003 20:43:51 +0700
For the future when program development starts up again, I have a
request from my supervisor. I have been compiling some text module files
for one of the versions of the Thai Bible (sold and distributed by the
Thailand Bible Society). They would like to have a combined Name and
Code combination that could then equate to an encryption key. It is
quite likely (possible anyways) here in Thailand that if someone gets a
CD with the Bible module and some note with the unlock code that they
would then pass it on to friends or even sell it themselves.
Other share-ware programs that I have bought usually have require my
name and some code provided by the seller. Is this possible with the
Sword data engine? I don't think that this increase the security that
much but it makes the improper usage a little more obvious to the user.
