On my regular morning stroll through the job boards,
I came across the following tidbit:
"$Company requires protection from unauthorized
source code access and illegal duplication of
its intellectual property that exists in the
form of perl source code. The goal of this
assignment is to provide a licensing mechanism
that can decrypt securely, installed $Company
perl software on a customerís machine without
the clientís ability to glean the source.
Furthermore the same mechanism needs to update
appropriate fields in some of the installed
modules with information embedded in the license
before being passed onto the interpreter.
OK. I give up. Is this even possible?
Microsoft delendum est.
