Re: Securing A Database - License Key
Whilst looking at securing a database you might want to think hard about un-securing it again. Most people do this for the value of the database and to stop people copying it and normally don't think of the customer.
If somebody has paid a lot of money for a database and then has a hard drive failure, they change the hard drive to a new one with a different number, restore a back-up and expect to be working again.
If you are going to charge good money you need to be in a position to fix things a bit quick or will have a very disgruntled customer.
