Node-locked licensing is a software licensing approach in which a license for a software application is assigned to one computer or dongle, in other words - one specific node. Typically any numbers of instances are allowed to execute for such license, it's uncounted.

Used by software publishers to ensure the license is run on a particular computer only.

Other names that can be found for this type of licensing model:

  • Single Use License,
  • Device License,
  • Machine Based License.
