Secure CD distribution

By baqup ·
We are currently needing to deploy cd's to our remote users that contain our company confidential data. Are there any enterprise level products that can encrypt the cd or make it take advantage of AD to make sure only our employees are able to install the application.

why send a CD?

by mrTibbs In reply to Secure CD distribution

CD's are pretty well impossible to protect .. take the CD and throw any number of cracking / hacking tools at it .. if the information is valuable someone will break it somehow even if they resort to reading the CD byte by byte.
You could write a keyed application 'is this person logged in' before decrypting the data but such a scheme is usually trivial to break if the viewer appliciaton and data both available to the cracker.
