Please Note:

CTE Licensing Model

CTE base and LDT add-on licenses are offered through the following licensing models:

Trialware

Provides the fully-functional CTE solution for 90 days with pre-installed trial license. After the trial period expires, CTE configurations on the CipherTrust Manager become read-only. Only decryption of GuardPoints is allowed; LDT-enabled registration is not allowed.

This is the default license shipped with the CipherTrust Manager.

Time-limited Rental

Provides the fully-functional CTE solution for a prepaid charge for a specific period of time, for a specific number of clients.

This license comes with a grace period of 90 days. After the license period expires, the grace period starts. During the grace period, CTE continues working normally. However, after the grace period is over, CTE configurations on the CipherTrust Manager become read-only. Only decryption of GuardPoints is allowed; LDT-enabled registration is not allowed.

The CipherTrust Manager GUI starts showing a notification about the remaining license time. The license renewal can be ordered before the license expires.

The number of clients that can be registered with the CipherTrust Manager is limited by the number of licenses purchased.
For example, if a 1-year license is purchased for 1000 clients, then only 1000 clients can be registered with the CipherTrust Manager.

Perpetual Licensing Model

Provides the fully-functional CTE solution for a prepaid charge with no time limit, for a specific number of clients.

The number of clients that can be registered with the CipherTrust Manager is limited by the number of licenses purchased.
For example, if a perpetual license is purchased for 1000 clients, then only 1000 clients can be registered with the CipherTrust Manager.

A CipherTrust Manager appliance administrator can install the CTE license.

Add-on Licenses

CTE offers the Live Data Transformation (LDT) feature as an add-on license. To use the LDT feature, you need a CTE base license activated on the CipherTrust Manager.

Activating CTE Licenses

Activating a CTE license requires a license string for the CipherTrust Manager with which the clients will be registered. This string is generated when a license is activated on the Sentinel EMS License Portal.

Refer to Activating a Connector License for details.

After the CTE base license is activated, it state becomes Active on the Features tab of the Licensing page of the CipherTrust Manager GUI. The license is displayed with the feature name CTE - TransparentEncryption.

After the base CTE license is installed, an LDT add-on license can be activated and installed. The steps to install an LDT license are the same as installing a connector license. Refer to Activating a Connector License for details. The installed LDT license is displayed with the feature name CTE - LiveDataTransformation.

When a client is unregistered (unenrolled), the number of Used Clients on the Licensing page remains the same. To update the clients usage, the unregistered client must be deleted from the CipherTrust Manager. After the client is deleted, the license is released and can be used to register another client.
