External key generation and secure offline key validation

Two great features are now implemented and accessible by all users of Serial Key Manager (SKM): External key generation and passive key validation.

External key generation

From now on, you can generate new keys with a simple web request without exposing neither the password of a product nor the log in details to your account. Everything is handled by a private key that you can change at any time. This feature can be activated/deactivated at any time also.

This is particularly good if you want to automatize the entire software distribution cycle (app downloaded, evaluated, purchased, activated).

For more information, please read the following article or see the video embedded in the end of this post.

Passive key validation

One of the greatest advantages of SKM is that you can control all apps that are connected to SKM servers. That is, all your changes on the server will instantly reach the client app.

In some cases, however, there is no need to validate keys each time the application starts. You might, for instance, want to validate a key only once or possibly once in a month (or any other interval of time), and, at the same time,  be sure that the key information has not been altered.

For more information on how this can be accomplished, please read the following article.

Conclusion

Both of these features were suggested by users of SKM. As I’ve mentioned in the previous posts, all your suggestions are very important to make SKM a great product. In contrast to the early version of SKM, there are now so many new functionality available in SKM. Because of this, all users that registered before the 11th of August have received an extended trial period.

I hope everyone enjoys using SKM. If you would have any questions, please feel free to ask me in English, Swedish or Russian!
