If you sell software and want to enforce whatever access privileges
your customer has purchased, Easy Encryption is for you.
Easy Encryption is a collection of simple, stripped-down
FileMaker Pro files and documentation that show you a way to use
FileMaker's calculation functions to encrypt serial numbers, or
other small codes. Not a plug-in, these are 100% pure FileMaker
techniques that you can use freely in any database with no licensing
Unlike most encryption plug-ins, Easy Encryption produces human
readable alphanumeric strings that encrypt/decrypt the same on
Mac and on Windows.
Includes a fully functional system for encoding data (like customer
numbers, expiration dates, etc.) into unique serial numbers, which
can then be provided or sold to customers, and decoded by their
copy of your software to unlock functionality. (Please note that
this is not an effective way to encrypt large blocks of text; it's
optimized for serial numbers, credit card numbers, or similar short
For FileMaker 5-11.
Will Loving of Dedication Technologies has posted a free script
that can be used with Easy Encryption to generate random strings.

"Easy Encryption has been instrumental
in guaranteeing we get paid for our work - no cheque no code
- works a treat - many thanks."

"Once we started using Easy Encryption
our sales more than doubled, even though we had the same number
of people downloading. Somehow people were stealing our product,
and we never even knew it. Easy Encryption plugged those holes."
- Tony Hoshino
