Sentinel License Development Kit (LDK) is a comprehensive software monetization solution that pairs the company’s award-winning software copy and
intellectual property (IP) protection features with the web-based, license management capabilities of Sentinel EMS, Gemalto’s
entitlement management system. Sentinel EMS can be hosted on premise or on Sentinel Managed Application Hosting Services for improved delivery, reliability and security.
Sentinel LDK also features three best of class protection types i.e. Sentinel HL, Sentinel SL and Sentinel CL. Whether you ship physical boxes, embed your software into high-tech devices, offer electronic delivery, or deliver your product as a service in the cloud, our various protection types have you covered. Featuring Gemalto’s innovative and unique Cross-Locking™ technology, Sentinel LDK enables you to leverage any combination of hardware or software license delivery and locking options. Each protection type has its own unique benefits:
Sentinel HL family of keys offers the highest level of copy and IP protection available. Offered in a wide variety of types and form factors, the Sentinel HL keys protect software by allowing access and execution of the application only when the key is physically connected. Sentinel HL keys are ideal for software publishers whose primary concern is security. They are ideal for scenarios where the protected application runs on a device that supports USB or ExpressCard, with additional options for embedding directly on circuit boards.

Sentinel SL keys are virtual software-based keys built on the Sentinel HL protection technology and residing in the secure storage of your end-user’s machine. The use of Sentinel SL eliminates the need to ship a physical product, enabling end users to quickly install and start using the application. Sentinel SL is ideal for software publishers whose end users require more flexible license delivery methods.
