JScript.Encode

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

JScript.Encode is a method created by Microsoft used to encode both server and Client-side JavaScript or VB Script source code in order to protect the source code from copying.[1] JavaScript code is used for creating dynamic web content on many websites, with the source code easily viewable, so this was meant to protect the code.

The encoding is a simple polyalphabetic substitution using three alphabets.

How to use[edit]

You can use a command line script encoder [1] to encode your scripts. To encode a HTML web-page file called default.htm, use the following command:

screnc.exe default.htm defaultenc.htm

It would output to a file called defaultenc.htm.

Weaknesses[edit]

It has been reverse engineered [2] and many websites provide an on-the-fly decoder.[3]
