Question - Linux binary protection software
« on: April 13, 2010, 10:19:45 AM »

I'm looking for a tool being able to encrypt / protect a linux binary (ELF) against reverse engineering. Something like AsProtect which unfortunately works only in Windows. Thanks!

Have you looked over on Sourceforge yet? ( www.sourceforge.net )

Note: what you're looking for runs contrary to the whole philosophy behind Linux, so don't be surprised if you end up not finding anything. There's a good chance such an app might even create a violation of the GPL.

On the flip side of argv's request, if you want to look into software to see what the code is and whether it's GPL-compliant, check out the Binary Analysis Tool.
