Recommended way of storing the DeploymentKey of your license

Post by alex.girigan » Wed Jan 09, 2019 2:28 pm

Hi all,

I'm wondering what's the recommended way of storing the DeploymentKey of your license?

Placing it in app.config is the normal way I'd do it, as it's an app setting. But that is unsafe as every end user can see that key.
Encrypt the key and then store it in app.config is a bit safer, but not impossible to break.
Shoving it in a *.cs file and then use obfuscation is the recommended way in the UsersManual.

I'm wondering how the community has handled this.

Thanks a bunch,
Alex G
