Finding the right defenses against cyber attacks is an important and difficult task. WIBU-SYSTEMS has therefore significantly expanded its proven CodeMeter Protection Suite for the automatic protection of software against piracy and reverse engineering: The newly integrated Compile Time Obfuscation (CTO) function is now available for AxProtector Windows, AxProtector Linux and AxProtector macOS. To use this function, the new AxProtector Compile Time Protection (CTP) technology has also been introduced.

Data masking as a new approach to software protection

Compile Time Obfuscation is an innovative technology that takes a completely new approach to software protection by obfuscating the entire application during the compilation process. Together with AxProtector CTP, obfuscation technology brings the protection of the application to the same level as encryption-based protection tools. AxProtector CTP obfuscates symbols and the flow of the application, inserts additional blocks and hides logical links in the code to increase protection against reverse engineering. The AxProtector CTP technology is already included as a CTO option in the AxProtector Windows, AxProtector Linux and AxProtector macOS products. It supports Intel, ARMHF and AARCH64 and currently works with the programming languages C and C++. Other programming languages can also be supported on request.

Maximum integrability

Thanks to the versatility of LLVM (Low Level Virtual Machine - a modular compiler system with a virtual instruction set), AxProtector CTP is able to support multiple operating systems, architectures and platforms. With AxProtector CTP, comprehensive defense techniques can be smoothly integrated to increase the security of applications for different use cases. In addition, all features of AxProtector products, such as flexible licensing through trusted cryptographic algorithms, are also available in the new CTP technology. The close link between licensing, encryption and obfuscation is designed to provide optimum protection for applications.

Unsolvable puzzle

"In a world where cyber threats are evolving daily, relying on encryption alone is not enough. AxProtector CTP takes this one step further by obfuscating your software at compile time, turning it into a puzzle that is almost unsolvable even for the most experienced hackers," explains Stefan Bamberg, Director Sales and Key Account Management at WIBU-SYSTEMS.
