Expected to see Eviews Workfiles Encryption

Postby merito » Sun Feb 11, 2018 11:57 pm

Hi All and Eviews Team,

I am heavily rely on the program of Eviews estimation everyday, and it is bravo to see the Programs can be encrypted , however , by the commercial practice , sometimes, the Work-file contains confidential business information and do not want to leakage to the third party user when transition of the Eviews work-files.

So it is highly expected to see advanced work-file encryption option when new higher version of the Eviews appears.

Technique speaking, it is not difficult to add such module into Eviews-Work files, so , in order to built up an more popular Eviews commercial environment, I strongly advice your esteemed team to develop such an option.

It is an interesting idea and I can understand the appeal

There are, however, legal issues that make this not quite as simple a request as one might think. Given this fact and the existence of third-party encryption tools which can be used to encrypt a workfile, this feature is currently not high on our list for upcoming versions.

That, of course, could change, but I wanted to give you an honest assessment. Thank you for the feedback.
