The Software Licensing Library is a complete and flexible solution for your company licensing needs. You gain total control over what features of your software can be used on what machine for how long. The library uses license keys, which are copy and paste-able text strings that can be sent via the web or email. Each license key is issued for specific machine and

allows it to run client application with specific features until expiration time. The library can be used for protecting applications targeted at individual users as well as software used in large corporations. The library offers a high degree of security with RSA cipher, different licensing schemes and cross-platform portability.

Software Licensing Library Features

The most important features of the product are:  
  • Strong 1024-bit RSA encryption of licenses
  • Each license contains application identifier, host id and expiration time

  • Licenses can securely carry additional licensing information

  • Portable object-oriented C++ API for client applications

  • Automatic host identifier generation based on network adapter MAC and other hardware components. Possibility to provide custom host ids.

  • Possibility to limit the number of instances of running application

  • Interface in Python and C for automatic license generation, e.g. from a web page or a script.

  • Cross-platform License Server application that allows corporation to centralize license management by usage of remote licenses.

  • The application code compiled to native assembly code and important data are obfuscated to protect from reverse engineering.
  • This package may also work in extra-high security mode with appropriate server and client software
  • Multiple license instances in one file
  • Operating systems supported: Windows, Linux, Solaris
  • License request protocol from client application to a web or mail server that allows it to securely transport user name and password (RSA encrypted).

The library employs efficient and flexible security model derived from private-public encryption scheme. This means that our customers are the only party that can issue licenses for their software.

The License Server software allows storage of all licenses for organization in one place and license acquisition as needed. The License Server Controller application provides management for the available licenses,

handles requests for subsequent licenses and supports problem diagnoses with help of detailed log file.

This product can be easily customized to meet your company licensing needs. In particular, NG Logic can quickly adopt our solution to be used in Java and .NET platform. We can also develop custom license generation automations.

More information about supported licensing schemes can be found on this page.
