Cryptosolic, which is currently in the early stages of development, will be an Open Source Cryptography & Software Licensing Solution for commercial/closed source .Net based software projects.
The main focus of the Cryptosolic project will be to provide a solution to facilitate the sale and licensing of individual features or CALs (Client Access Licenses) within a software package, and provide functionality to restrict the use of elements of the software, or the software in its entirety, without permission from the product owner.
Although not the main focus, hashing and encryption algorithms will be the back bone of the license enforcement functionality, and as such, I have decided to separate my implementations of these algorithms into an additional library that can be used to protect information independently of any licensing enforcement features.
