I would like to secure my Rails app source code because we have a
complex application and we install it on our customer sites.
It is in our company’s best interest to keep the source code secure
since we have invested a great amount of time and research in
developing the logic/algorithm behind the application.
We evaluated several options (like Rubyscript2exe, etc) and came to a
conclusion that we should enrypt the Rails application source code and
which can be decrypted on the fly to serve application. This will not
allow anyone to look at the code even if the application is running or
if someone get hold of a copy of our source code.
I looked around but couldn’t find anything that can do something like
this, ie encryption and decryption of source code something what
ZendGuard does for PHP.
I would appreciate if you have any suggestions or ideas on this.
Thanks in advance.
