Sentinel HASP HL Time

The World's Most Secure Software Protection Dongle

Sentinel HASP HL Time is a Software Protection Dongle that contains a highly accurate Real Time Clock (RTC) which enables time based (expiry date & days from first use) and tamper proof expiration date license management solutions. 

Like most of Gemalto’s award-winning Sentinel HASP family of hardware-based protection keys, the Sentinel HASP HL Time key includes a full complement of robust security and cryptographic algorithms, including a unique 32-bit ID, 128-bit AES encryption and support for 64,000 encryption keys.

Each Sentinel HASP HL Time contains a unique ID number that allows us to protect each copy of the application unique. Knowing the ID number of a key allows you to fully control the sale and renovation protected software.
