Download Red Gate SmartAssembly 8 - An obfuscator that helps protect your application against reverse-engineering or modification
Red Gate SmartAssembly is an obfuscator that helps protect your application against reverse-engineering or modification, by making it difficult for a third-party to access your source code. If your entire business rests on the IP embodied in your software or you don't want your C# or VB.NET code exposed internationally, then obfuscating your code becomes a necessity, not a luxury.
With SmartAssembly, you get a comprehensive set of obfuscation features, including name mangling, control flow obfuscation, strings encoding, reference dynamic proxy, and declarative obfuscation.
Key features of Red Gate SmartAssembly 8
Changes the names of methods and fields to make it hard to understand their purpose.
Converts the code inside methods to 'spaghetti code' to make it difficult to see how the application works.
Creates a proxy for calls to methods outside of your assembly to make it hard to find external calls.
Encodes the strings used in your software to hide such information as passwords and SQL queries.
Compresses and encrypts managed resources to make them hard to understand, and to reduce the size of the assembly.
Removes non-useful metadata to make the code harder to reverse-engineer, reduce the size of the assembly, and improve loading time.
Takes all the DLLs and merges dependencies into the main assembly, so you don't have to load lots of DLL files, and so that they can also be obfuscated.
Compresses and embeds your dependencies into your main assembly, simplifying the deployment of your software and reducing the size of your program.
Moves methods in your code by changing the class they are in, making it harder to understand how methods and classes relate to each other.
Signs your assembly and helps to protect it against modification (the additional tamper protection is not available in the Standard edition).
Excludes a member from obfuscation using custom attributes directly in your code.
