This is your Tech Tidbits Daily for Wednesday, April 27th, 2005.
Today's podcast contains one technical news item, and one subscriber feedback.
Arxan Technologies has developed an application that provides effective protection against reverse engineering, code lifting, and unauthorized changes to software applications. The tool is called "EnforcIT" and it is based on new technology created at the National Security Agency's Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security, located at Purdue University. EnforcIT provides user selectable and adjustable levels of security. These can be added to binary executables before distribution so that tamper-proof "Guard" algorithms are inserted into the executable itself. The Guards do not interfere with the functions of the executable, but increase its level of security and resistance to tampering and reverse engineering. Currently targeted systems include Windows on Intel, and VXWorks on PowerPC.
