That is not "strong crypto", that is just hashing.

Re: Pirates

KraKra, I agree your approach is the ideal approach; however, one problem stopping me implementing it is that it needs a connection to the server.  I find connection establishment on blackberry very problematic (e.g. lots of people that can't get a connection).

Our experience from last 12 months is that all BlackBerry users can browse the web.

Opening a web page which displays link to license OTA install files practically works for 99.9999% of all users.

 

If I remeber correctly, we had only one case where we had to send the license file to the user manually.
