Use Rubyencoder encrypt ruby code

前些时候研究了一下ruby encoder的加密技术应用,在这里记录一下它的使用过程。

Ruby Encoder将ruby代码加密成不易阅读的格式,然后通过它提供的加载类型来载入ruby代码,从而达到加密的目的。它是一个付费软件,一个许可证要159美金,提供试用版,可以试用一个星期,支持Linux \ FreeBSD \ Mac OS X \ Windows系统。

首先在Ruby Encoder上注册一个帐号,登录进去后,我这里选择下载Mac OS X版的,RubyEncoder Trial for Mac OS X (RubyEncoder_1.3_Trial.dmg),下载后,将dmg中的程序拖到applications目录,就算安装好了。

qichunren:~ qichunren$ cd /Applications/RubyEncoder/
qichunren:RubyEncoder qichunren$ ls
Icon?				RubyEncoder_User_Manual.pdf	bin/
README				Start RubyEncoder.app*		rgloader/

第一次使用的话,需要它的官方网站给你提供一个许可证文件(文件名为encode.lic),进行Ruby Encoder的bin目录,执行其中的rubyencoder文件, 它会输出一些它的软件声明信息,一直回车后几次后,阅读完许可声明,它还要求你输入’I AGREE’后,然后输出一个注册码(Reg Key),要求你登录到它的网站中,在个人帐户里,在页面最下面的Available Licenses中填入注册码,然后下载它提供的encode.lic文件,放在Ruby Encoder的bin目录中,现在就可以使用Ruby Encoder了。

直接执行一下rubyencoder命令,可以先了解一下它的用法。

qichunren:bin qichunren$ ./rubyencoder

像我给公司做的一个小项目,我只需要加密rails目录中的app目录就足够了,官方也建议只加密app目录就行了,可能是为了避免一些加密问题?

qichunren:bin qichunren$ ./rubyencoder --ruby 1.9 /Users/qichunren/code/menu/app/**/*.rb

这样就完成了app目录中的rb代码加密,同时它还备份了原来的rb文件,是同名的后缀为bak的文件,在部署中应该将.bak文件都删除掉。还有一件事情要做,需要把Ruby Encoder的相当于解密的加载器文件复制到app目录中,也就是加密代码的上一级目录里面来,这样项目可以正常执行了。

qichunren:RubyEncoder qichunren$ pwd
/Applications/RubyEncoder
qichunren:RubyEncoder qichunren$ cp -r rgloader/ /Users/qichunren/code/menu/app/

下面是我咨询的关于Ruby Encoder的许可证相关的几个问题的官方回复邮件。

Hi,

Thank you for your interest in RubyEncoder. Please find answers below.

> 0. After I paid $159 for RubyEncoder, do I have license to run rubyencoder on different machines for different systems(mac or linux). I have serval machines for development and deployment.
RubyEncoder is licensed per-machine. One license lets you install and
use the encoder to one physical or virtual machine. If you use multiple
machines for development you may purchase additional licenses for $99
each. Note, loaders that are required to run protected files are free.

> 1. I developed on Mac OSX system usually, then deploy my rails application on Linux (Ubuntu 11). This goes well currently. I want to know after encode my rails 3 application on mac, then will it goes well on my deployed Linux machine?
Yes, you encode on your Mac and then install encoded files to your Linux
machine as usual. To run protected files on Linux you need to install
(copy a folder) RubyEncoder loaders for Linux to your rails root folder.
With version 1.3 you can encode your application controllers, helpers
and model rails files. Do not encode any other standard or configuration
rails files. For non-rails Ruby files you may encode any code. Ruby
verisons 1.8.6,1.8.7.1.9.0-1.9.3 are supported.

> 2. After I paid $159 for RubyEncoder, do I have to paid again for your update version? Can I get free follow-on support service and software update?
Once you pay you get 1 year of free support and updates.

> 3. How long is a paid license?
>
A license is time unlimited. Support is included for 1 year since the
date of purchase. We do email support.


Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
