Abstract

See full text

Systems, methods, and apparatuses for installing a software product using timestamp validation and system identification validation are disclosed. An example method to lock a software product in a software wrapper includes determining a unique hard drive serial number of a user device to which the software product is to be installed and generating a hash number of the unique hard drive serial number. The example method also includes determining a campaign identifier of the software product from a secure variable within the software product and generating a date-time code based on a current date and time. The method further includes assembling the date-time code and the campaign identifier into an unlock code, encrypting the unlock code using the hash number as a passphrase key to create an encrypted unlock code, and applying the encrypted unlock code to an end of a filename of an installer using a command line parameter.
