NOTE   * Looking for Sentinel RMS CodeCover?
CodeCover is deprecated since v9.1 and now removed from the SDK. If you want to license your applications using automatic protection, consider using Sentinel RMS Envelope. It’s more secure and supports a wide-range of platforms and compilers.
However, it does not provide backward-compatibility to applications protected using CodeCover. You need to plan and perform your application protection routine (from scratch) with Sentinel RMS Envelope.
The Sentinel RMS Envelope package is not included in RMS SDK ISO. This package can be procured separately on-demand basis. Contact your Gemalto Sales Representative for obtaining it.

The related-topics links provided in the chapter provide more information about each of the components.
