which is the best reasonable price tool for code encryption / dotfuscation?
I found that the dotfuscator community edition only rename method names but
does not encrypt actual implementation.
If someone can share from their experience it will very help.
It depends what is a reasonable price to you but all the tools i came
across that could encrypt the code were horribly expensive to me (in the
order of several thousand pounds per application). Plus i think that they
don't encrypt the code itself but only the string litterals (and they also
of course rename the functions/classes/variables, modify the flow of your
But why do you want to encrypt the code of your application in the first
place? Obfuscation is all about protecting the code so that somebody else
can not simply decompile your app and ripp off your code. Dotfuscator
community edition does that pretty well and should be sufficient in most
I also suppose that you are aware of the implications of code obfuscation
and of how it could impede your ability to provide proper support for your
application or piss off developers using your library (if that's a library
that you're selling)
