A computer-implemented system for providing security to a proprietary software algorithm is presented. The system, known as Software Algorithm Security ("SAS"), is a form of individual heuristic copy protection requiring a provable national origination to execute. The SAS completely encrypts a software algorithm's executable preamble, thereby making alteration of executable image logic close to impossible. Making use of the ability to safeguard a single executable image, Software Licensing Logic was designed to preamble software for licensing purposes. Each algorithm licensed could be tracked and reported if executed illegally, or hacked. Illegal execution would include not originating execution from a preset collective of land line phone numbers or attempting to execute the executable image outside the confines of a national boundary.
