Title: SECURE BINDING OF SOFTWARE APPLICATION TO A COMMUNICATION DEVICE
Abstract:
Techniques for securely binding a software application to a communication device may include sending a set of device identifiers associated with the computing device to a server, receiving a server-generated dynamic device identifier that is generated based on the set of device identifiers; and storing the server-generated dynamic device identifier during initialization of the application. During runtime execution of the application, the application may receive a request to execute an application specific task. In response to receiving the request, the application may generate a runtime dynamic device identifier, determine whether the runtime dynamic device identifier matches the server-generated dynamic device identifier, execute the application specific task when the runtime dynamic device identifier matches the server-generated dynamic device identifier; and prevent the application specific task from being executed when the runtime dynamic device identifier does not match the server-generated dynamic device identifier.
