    Does anyone know of software that can be used to seal a CD, so it can't be copied or the files/folders can't be copied off of it using Windows Explorer? I think I used something in the past to protect my BartPE environment, but this needs to be able to work outside of that world.

    A safebox. If you never give it out no one can copy it.



    If you were so inclined you could build a PE, or VM environment to have the CD run in, with a security key based off system hardware, and a premade key for each CD.



    We have a vendor who does this, so you cannot copy the CD, once installed on a machine a hardware change causes the install to stop functioning. And once the VM is setup on the PC, then the other encrypted contents of the disc can be read.

    Yeah I know of that possibility as well, but it wouldn't quite work in the environment I need to use it as the machines are variable. The only constant are the people needing to access the information.
