What’s the difference between the option DYNAMIC_SMART_KEY, STATIC_SMART_KEY and STATIC_DYNAMIC_SMART_KEY in the Registration panel?
If you want to register your application via a SmartKey, you can use the old "Static SmartKey" or the new (and more secure) "Dynamic SmartKey".
We don't recommend using Static SmartKeys, they are shorter keys which attracts developers, but the security level is not very high. If you just want to allow your application to accept Static SmartKeys, you should select the option "STATIC_SMART_KEY"
If you want that your application only accepts the new and more secure and flexible Dynamic SmartKeys, select the option "DYNAMIC_SMART_KEY"
The last option "STATIC_DYNAMIC_SMART_KEY" accepts both types of licenses. This is normally used for customers who protected their applications with Static Smartkeys and they want to "slowly'' make the migration to dynamic SmartKeys, so their applications accept both types of SmartKeys.
We recommend just setting the option "DYNAMIC_SMART_KEY"
