Abstract
Avenda Systems recognizes the need for solutions that provide a significant deterrent to attackers wishing to pirate applications in order to execute those applications remotely. Avenda proposes to research and build an effective countermeasure to software piracy and reverse engineering using the various anti-forensics techniques. The proposed solution has some special out-of-band features that makes copying/cloning applications computationally hard. It covers feature gaps in current products that target software piracy prevention. Avenda Systems has the expertise to develop a practical and highly effective solution to address many available opportunities in this area. The technologies employed in this product are practical and innovative and have not been implemented in commercially available comparable products. Research and analysis in Phase I will provide the knowledge and foundation for building a complete solution in Phase II, and a commercially viable product in Phase III.
