Trusted storage license
This type of license is based on a combination of the machine’s identities, from but not limited to the following:
os, processor, ram, hard drive, and network mac id. These information are not submitted to Lumerical, rather they are stored as
binary information (encrypted)in a secure location in the machine’s hard drive.
This stored information
(trusted storage)is audited regularly by the FlexNet license manager system if it has been tampered or altered. If the license manager finds that the
trusted storagehas been altered or tampered in anyway, then the license manager will mark the
trusted storageinformation as
Untrusted. The license associated to this
Untrusted storage informationcannot be used anymore.
This license type can be easily activated, transferred to another machine.
It does not require a
license filefor activation.
The trusted storage license type is what Lumerical use for Trial and CUE program licenses.
Changes to any of the machine’s identities used by the
trusted storagecan affect and can break the license and make it

Certificate-based or ‘License file’ based license
This type of license is locked to the machine’s
network mac address. The machine’s network mac address has to be provided to Lumerical to be able to obtain a license using this license type.
License Fileis always required for activation.
This type of license cannot be transferred from one machine to another. It will be locked to the current machine for the duration / validity of the license.
This license type is not affected by os, software or hardware changes. Only when the network mac address is changed or if the license file is used on a different machine then the license is unusable.
