Current licensing schemes are legally and technically limited to local network and administrative domain. Moreover, dispersed administrative domains inhibit »normal« use of licenses. As a consequence, Grid and Cloud environments are difficult to impossible to handle with existing license management. Some solutions bend local licensing mechanisms, which is legally doubtful and technical patchwork. The SmartLM solution is addressing both new license models and the technology to realise these models allowing »mobile« licenses. The result is a new license framework based on tokens, which can be validated »offline«. Additional features like accounting & billing of license usage are provided.
