One of the problems with the swf format that Adobe Captivate (and Adobe Flash) publishes to, is that it is an open format. That means that people can download your files and re-use them for their own purposes. Imagine that you have spent a lot of time and money on developing an E-learning course in Adobe Captivate. After you publish this on your website/intranet/LMS some devious character download the files and publish them on the internet.
With this new component you can avoid that people can play your content on other servers than were you deployed it and even disallow the content to be played locally on a users PC.
Secure allows your to lock your content so that it can only be played on the servers that you specify.
If the content is played locally or on another domain than intended then the Adobe Captivate Project freezes and wont allow the user to view the content. If the content is played on an authorized domain then the users wont notice anything and the content will play as normally.

If you want to download the files for yourself and try to break it feel free. The downloadable files is set so it is only allowed to play on the domain www.captivate4.com. Anything else is not accepted.
Please note that this only works for Adobe Captivate Projects without playbars!
I need to add some more parameters to this file before I make it ready for sale.
