Authorize your software with the mightiest hardware-encrypted USB device and PKI-based security and licensing platform yet.
The iLok USB is a special USB device that holds licenses for iLok-enabled software. Software developers use iLok to provide secure protection for their software. When customers run your iLok-enabled software, it looks for the software license on the attached iLok USB and authenticates their access - on any computer.
The iLok USB is a sophisticated and technologically advanced security platform. It was designed to securely authorize many different applications that can be from the same or different software vendors. The iLok can also be used to unlock specific features within a protected application.
Today, many people know the iLok as a secure USB dongle that protects a vendor’s software or feature set. Under the hood it's not just a simple USB dongle but an active security device based on an extensible platform comprehensively designed by PACE Anti-Piracy.
The iLok can do much more than just authorize your software.
The iLok USB platform is an active security module that uses modern cryptography, including digital signatures and strong cryptographic block algorithms. Using industry proven PKI (Public Key Infrastructure), there is an active security exchange between your protected software and the iLok USB itself.
Licenses, securely stored in a single iLok USB device, can unlock code or data originating from multiple publishers without conflicts or security compromises between vendors. iLok USB licenses can be added to, updated in, or removed from an iLok USB device remotely and securely.
The iLok is completely integrated with PACE’s advanced software protection toolset and SDK, providing a scalable PKI solution that makes protecting your software easy and secure.
The iLok USB is based on PACE Anti-Piracy’s patented technology (U.S. Patent 7,032,240 and U.S. Patent 6,871,192).
