security features in 5.05

upeka I am almost done writing my ebook and getting to the compilation stage. I still have a question regarding the security features in 5.05. )Parts of it were answered earlier).

Here I go:Question: Version 5.05 includes a Vol. ID Security Option - in addition to the unique Password.

Now: what would prevent downloaders to use the unique password and simply pass the downloaded ebook around, giving out the password? As long as it hasn't been installed on a computer before someone passes it on, then the Vol. ID security feature wont work, correct?

Storyman I hope this addresses the question you're asking.

I believe what is meant by Vol. ID is that the seed number for the registration key is based on the drive's serial number. If you are using 1,000 possible passwords it means that the likelihood of any two users sharing the same password is 0.1%. With those percentages (IMHO) the risk is low.

upeka thanks for getting back to me as quickly as you did. I guess I simply dont understand the process entirely yet...so i will proceed with compilation, APS/PAypal setup..and then worry about the secuirty stuff...

Storyman When the security codes are generated you'll see two columns. One column is a sequential list from 1 to 1,000 and the other contains a random code. One is the Registration Codes and the other is the corresponding Password Codes.

When the user purchases the ebook they are shown a Registration Code. The corresponding Password Code must be entered in order to unlock the ebook. The reason that specific Registration Code is displayed is because of the serial number of the hard drive--that's what Vol. ID refers to.

upeka I think I am slowly (emphasis on very slowly) getting it! that means, that the registration codes are not consecutively assigned..but on the Vol. ID (hard-disk).  Thanks so much for your help!!

I have another issue I am struggling with for which I will start another Topic
