What is obfuscation?
Obfuscation is the practice of methodically going through straight-forward source code, renaming variables, transforming and rearranging code, hiding the original algorithm, data structures or the logic of the code, all with the goal of making it virtually impossible to read and understand from prying eyes but working the same way.
Why use a Code Obfuscator?
- Protect your code and intellectual property.
- Compact js to also make file size smaller and increase page speed.
- Work with jQuery!, NODE.JS and other JS frameworks.
- Always to preserve the operational qualities of the code.
If you are releasing valuable software and you are not distributing the source code, obfuscation should probably be part of your application development process.
Obfuscation & Protection Techniques
The goal of obfuscation is to make a program ‘unintelligible' without altering its functionality, thus making it extremely difficult for a hacker, cracker or competitor to reverse-engineer your application. Obfuscation is often confused with simple method renaming techniques and basic string obfuscation technologies, which can be quickly broken and easily reversed.
