Roughly a year ago we announced a hosted encryption service called Nitro-LM “Lite” at the 360|Flex Conference in Indianapolis, IN. Nitro-LM “Lite” was designed to provide a cost effective solution for asymmetric encryption of Flex/AIR applications without the need for a full License Client interface to be implemented in their application. It was designed to be an inexpensive service ($500/year for unliminted client users), very easy to implement, and seamless process for delivery while remaining unintrusive for their end-users (customers).
Unfortunately, the demand for the service has not exceeded the costs for managing it. As a result, we have decided to maintain the service until December 31, 2010, after which the service will be disabled. We are making this announcement now so that existing customers using the service have enough time to prepare for a migration to an alternative Nitro-LM hosted service offering, or to find/create alternative method to address their security needs for Flex/AIR.
Note: The discontinuation of Nitro-LM “Lite” does not mean that our support for Adobe Flex/AIR is being dropped from Nitro-LM. Nitro-LM can still be used for Adobe Flex/AIR Applications via our FREE, Standard and Enterprise Licensing Service Options.
The Online Flex Meetup Group is Organized by John Mason out of Atlanta, GA. His group attracts attendees from all over the USA and the World. We received an Invitation to present to this group on June 10, 2009. The event was recorded and also covered some material that was also presented at the 360|Flex Conference in Indianapolis, IN in May 2009. Enjoy!
The Nitro-LM licensing system is very feature packed. For a new user, it can sometimes be a little bit daunting to get set up and running. I’ve put together a screencast showing some common tasks to complete when getting started in the Nitro-LM system. If you haven’t yet signed up for a FREE 100 license account for a year, go to the Installation/Support page and follow the instructions.

In designing the new interface for Nitro-LM Administrator, I’ve had the pleasure of designing the new Report Builder interface. In the current production version of this tool, we have a handful of reports that licensees and customers can use to see various aspects of usage data.
In part two, we cover using the Asset Encrypter to encrypt AIR module swfs. This demo also contains a before and after look at the code using a decompiler.
In this two-part article, I’m going to run through a quick demo of how to protect the source code in an AIR app from decompilers using the Nitro-LM module encryption technique. Nitro-LM is a hosted licensing solution that can be enabled in your flex/AIR app for a nominal fee per license.
Doug McCune, world renowned expert on Adobe Flex/AIR and recently published Author, recently put on a presentation in England regarding decompiling SWFs. He covered many of the free and commercial applications used for both compiling and decompiling SWFs, and also the benefits/issues with obfuscation and encryption.
