License protection for high-end software
2007 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The BSA’s (Business Software Alliance) global study shows that 35% of all packaged software in use 2006 was illegal. The estimated loss due to software piracy was 40 billion dollars. It is therefore important for software companies to protect their software against illegal usage. Önnerlövs Consulting AB has developed a program for the mining industry and needs a way to protect their software. This Master Thesis evaluates different techniques used for software protection. We present a solution that builds on the use of a hardware key. Four hardware keys are tested in order to select the best one. It is then adapted to meet Önnerlövs criteria.
