Automatically Add License Protection and Obfuscation to PL/SQL

April 17th, 2014 by Pete

Yesterday we released the new version 2.0 of our product PFCLObfuscate. This is a tool that allows you to automatically protect the intellectual property in your PL/SQL code (your design secrets) using obfuscation and now in version 2.0 we have added "dynamic obfuscation". This is a new engine added to our parser that allows dynamic obfuscation to be run at various "hook" points in your PL/SQL source code files. These hooks are reached at the start of a declaration block, end of a declaration block, start of a PL/SQL block or end of a PL/SQL block. Also hooks occur when a defined PL/SQL package or procedure is located. The dynamic obfuscation is completely configurable by the customer and adds very powerful features to PFCLObfuscate.

Dynamic obfuscation allows us to add deeper obfuscations and also to automatically add license protections to your PL/SQL code or even tamperproof protections. This means that you can deploy your PL/SQL code with license type features controlling how and when your customers can use your code.

Please contact me for more details if you are interested in this new version of our product. We have kept the license fees at version 1.0 levels for the initial release. I have just written a detailed blog post on our product website and included an example of automatically adding license features to a set of PL/SQL code. The blog is PFCLObfuscate - Protect your PL/SQL

Hi Mike,

Version 2.1 will be the next release and this will include many more license features and some more obfuscation updates. This is tentetively due in mid June - we will lock the release date closer to the time.
