I have exactly the same opinion as Danny. A lock on the serial number would be a very good idea.
So am i.

Lock on the Serial seemed to be a good idea.

I think serial secure is very fine. But the saving of .slg logdata must be assure.

Don't get too focused on there being a solution provided that would pre-lock to the serial...that won't happen. Also, don't get focused on there being a solution provided that would allow this to work on a HDS Gen 1...that also won't happen. I know both of those are wanted but I need to manage expectations.

I'm only interested in whether or not the solution proposed meets your need or it defeats the purpose.

Is it possible to encrypt the data on a card in a way that it cannot be copied?

Let us go back to the initial proposal by Greg:

They only way we can offer this functionality is through a special encryption that would allow cards to be distributed in a ready to be encrypted state and once they are inserted into a chart plotter (with the necessary software), the ready to be encrypted AT5 files on the card could be encrypted to that device.

I guess this would be a free service too ? If yes, I can live with it that the AT5 files are only locked to a device after it's first use on that device. If I provide a self made chart to one of my friends, he will have to bring in his unit so I can initialize the maps on his unit myself.

Yes, this would be a free service. Excellent response, as well. It's important to know at what level you would use the proposed functionality.

No problem, main thing any possibility of encryption for data safety exist.

Greg - You are the boss and You know, what a level is possible in the technical manner.

Would it be not better, to present the possible levels, and so we have a better common ground?

What is possible on a technical level is irrelevant. The restriction on the functionality is a business restriction, not a technical restriction.

In the scope of this thread, there are only two possibilities and a bit of a grey level between the two: yes or no.

Of course "yes", if not-encrypted option anymore exist.

But the question for yes/no was not so simple recognizable.

This is being delayed until we find a strong use case.

For now, the level of need doesn't justify the work.
