That "doesn't compute". I'll tell you why.
You should not rely on an obfuscator for security. Maybe for protection of your
code (IP), but even that is just walking on thin ice. Security should be dealt
with in a different way. You should use cryptosystems for this purpose.
Cryptosystems don't rely on privacy/secrecy of algorithms (that's sometimes
called security through obscurity:
), but rather on
privacy/secrecy of a key (or keys) used.
(Some might argue that keys are a part of an algorithm, but for the sake of this
argument, let's say keys are input for an algorithm.)
Don't get me wrong, though. You don't have to open source your ( super duper ;-)
) code/algorithm. But you shouldn't take it for granted that nobody will ever
figure it out, either.
