    How to protect .sis? Shareware?

    Dear,

    I have a question regarding the protection of symbian application. Back to the age of Nokia software market, I would get an email notification with user's IMEI no. from Nokia when there was a purchase, then I would send a serial no. generated by the IMEI no to the end user.

    Now, OVI does not allow me to use serial no. to protect my application. I have to submit a full functional version to OVI,

    how can I protect my application then if the end user can get the full function .sis file?

    Thanks for your reply,
    ysdl

    With Ovi Store, as it exists today, you don't. All Ovi Store supports for some content types is OMA DRM v1 forward-locking.

    Hei,

    This seems to be a little bit off topic.
    We plan to release a software, but because the security problems with Ovi Store, we plan to choose another channel to reach users.
    Could you point out some effective, harder to crack methods for generating serial numbers based on IMEI, and then maybe some methods for checking the serials (if it was generated for a specific IMEI)?

    You could license Openbit/Tanla License Manager ( http://www.openbit.com ) or Psiloc DRM Common Solutions ( http://www.psiloc.com ).
