Re: ngc obfuscation

Jon,

 

It is obfuscated in and of itself!


Clearly, it existed as a command line option sometime in the past.


Now, the only supported means for security of the design is using the encryption methods and means.

 

Obfuscation may have convinced some in the past that they were secure, but no one seriously believes that any longer. 

 

Not only were they were never secure then:  obfuscation is not a secure means today, either.
