[Solved] Encryption of resource file?
I am using OpenCL in my Qt based application.
OpenCL requires that its code be compiled JIT for optimum performance.
I am thinking of creating a binary file containing source in QString format and keeping the file as a resource file.
So I wanted to know whether it is possible for hackers to copy the file from the built executable?
Yes, it is definitely possible to read and modify a Qt resource compiled into the executable. Not anyone with Notepad will be able to do it. However, it's certainly not a problem for a "hacker", because the mechanism how Qt stores resources is "well documented":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5.0/qtcore/resources.html and implemented in "open source":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5.0/qtcore/qresource.html.
Thank You for your reply!
I think that much security is enough for my needs.
