GenLM: License Management for Grid and Cloud Computing Environments

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Software license management allows independent software vendors (ISVs) to control the access of their products. It is a fundamental part of the ISVs' business strategy. A wide range of products has been developed in order to address license management. There are, however, only few ongoing works with regard to license management in grid and cloud computing environments. This paper presents the work on GenLM, a license management solution suitable for these environments. It has been built in order to provide a secure and robust solution for ISVs that want to extend their software usage to these systems. The paper provides ISVs a toolchain to implement arbitrary software licensing models.
