The article discusses the issues of software protection from unauthorized use, modification and copying, which is the most important task of modern information and computing systems. Given the widespread use of virtualization and cloud computing, in which application software is often executed in an untrusted computing environment, research and development aimed at creating new methods to protect programs from illegal use and reverse engineering of the algorithms used in them are of particular relevance. A review of the protection mechanisms applied to the software to complicate the process of its modification is given.
