Protecting code

100+
P: 116
Hi

As a newbie with all this I'm now at the stage where I need to think about protecting my code but it's like I've stepped up way above my head with all this talk of obfuscation etc.

My application has 2 major causes for concern.

1. I have proprietary algorithms in the code that have taken me months to develop and form the basis for the reason I can distribute and charge for this application (hopefully)

2. I need to deal with a server-based database (currently) that needs encryption to prevent spoofing etc so the key has to be in the code - yikes!

I foolishly assumed that VB solutions could be totally protected by assigning a key and encrypting the code but now it seems nothing is safe.

So.....

What would be the best way to protect what I have either by some software or a better method?

Thanks!
