User ID code
I know that obfuscation can be done to .NET code, but as we start development in .NET, we wonder if the IL code can be protected enough to prevent reverse engineering user id verification.
You could write it in unmanaged code (say, C++) and call it using P/Invoke or IJW. But I personally find x86 pretty easy to read, and a determined hacker isn't going to be stopped.
Can you describe your authorization algorithm and authorization needs in more detail? Perhaps we can come up with a better scheme.
