How to Protect Flash SWF Files with Encryption

June 27, 2012 / Posted by Dupont on Utilities

If you develop your web with Flash technologies, the end output would be a SWF file that can be run in the browser with the Adobe Flash Player. This allows the development of rich internet applications (RIA) with very dynamic interfaces. Just think about how widely the Flash SWF files are used in webpage ads, Flash games and Flash banners, etc. Besides its convenience for end users, the developer may suffer a lot if unscrupulous developers decompose your SWF file into its source code (typically FLA format) for their own use.

That’s why developers need to protect flash SWF files with encryption. Leawo Flash SWF Protector is a professional SWF obfuscator to help you easily encrypt SWF files. Like other Flash optimizers, Leawo SWF Encrypt manages to protect Flash SWF files by obfuscating ActionScript Code to make the source code unreadable even to SWF Decompilers. However, it has an advantage over others that it supports loading relevant SWF files to ensure successful invocation of SWF files after encryption.
