Description

JObfuscator employs a variety of obfuscation techniques to protect & conceal the true functionality of your Java source code.

It renames all variables and methods, obfuscates the code flow by making it non-linear, and encrypts all strings with our cutting-edge polymorphic string encryption engine.

JObfuscator — Java Source Code Obfuscation & Protection

JObfuscator is a source code obfuscator for the Java programming language. It can protect your Java source code and algorithms from hacking, cracking, reverse engineering, decompilation, and technology theft.

JObfuscator employs a variety of obfuscation techniques to protect & conceal the true functionality of your Java source code.

It renames all variables and methods, obfuscates the code flow by making it non-linear, and encrypts all strings with our cutting-edge polymorphic string encryption engine.

Java decompilation is a huge problem

Applications written in Java and compiled to JAR, WAR or CLASS formats are vulnerable to decompilation.

There are a number of decompilers that can almost completely recreate the compiled code back to Java source.

The problem is that the compiled Java code is written as a so-called bytecode for the JVM (as opposed to the native CPU code like x86 or x86-64).

In addition to being perfectly perfectly documented, this form of code allows for very accurate reproduction of the original instructions in high-level Java source code.

What can Java decompilers do?

Take a look at this example:

Java JAD Decompiler

This is decompiled Java code! All the variable, property and method names are readable. You can even easily navigate through the entire decompiled project, jumping from one class to another.

Are you surprised? It could be your software analyzed by the competition, hackers, crackers or anyone else.

Technology & Intellectual Property (IP) Theft

What could they do with it? Most of the time, the software or its algorithms are stolen or replicated in competing products.

In some other cases, the software gets cracked, clearly visible license checks in decompiled source code are patched or even the entire cracked software is recompiled and published on pirate sites.

Java source code obfuscation

Obfuscation is the process of transforming Java source code into a protected version of itself.

The functionality remains unchanged, everything works the same, but the source code and the final compiled bytecode are protected from reverse engineering analysis, even after the decompilation.

Sample Java source code before obfuscation

import java.util.*;
import java.lang.*;
import java.io.*;

//
// you must include custom annotations to enable
// entire class or a single method obfuscation
//
@Obfuscate
class Ideone
{
    //@Obfuscate
    public static double calculateSD(double numArray[])
    {
        double sum = 0.0, standardDeviation = 0.0;
        int length = numArray.length;

        for(double num : numArray) {
            sum += num;
        }

        double mean = sum/length;

        for(double num: numArray) {
            standardDeviation += Math.pow(num - mean, 2);
        }

        return Math.sqrt(standardDeviation/length);
    }

    //
    // selective obfuscation strategies can be applied
    // for the entire class or a single method (by default
    // all obfuscation strategies are enabled when you
    // use @Obfuscate annotation alone)
    //
    //@Obfuscate(
    //  remove_comments = true,
    //  crypt_strings = true,
    //  rename_methods = false,
    //  rename_variables = true,
    //  shuffle_methods = true,
    //  mix_code_flow = true
    // )
    public static void main(String[] args) {

        double[] numArray = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 };
        double SD = calculateSD(numArray);

        System.out.format("Standard Deviation = %.6f", SD);
    }
