PyArmor is a command line tool used to obfuscate python scripts, bind obfuscated scripts to fixed machine or expire obfuscated scripts. It protects Python scripts by the following ways:

  • Obfuscate code object to protect constants and literal strings.
  • Obfuscate co_code of each function (code object) in runtime.
  • Clear f_locals of frame as soon as code object completed execution.
  • Verify the license file of obfuscated scripts while running it.

PyArmor supports Python 2.6, 2.7 and Python 3.

PyArmor is tested against Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

PyArmor has been used successfully with FreeBSD and embedded platform such as Raspberry Pi, Banana Pi, Orange Pi, TS-4600 / TS-7600 etc. but is not fullly tested against them.
