I am trying to use 'cpuid' instruction to get a unique number so I can use it for generating a license number for my application. I would like to know if it is possible to do such a thing with CPU id or I have to use some other methods like MAC address of a NIC card ?
I have read articles on the net about possibilty of using cpu id, but on the other hand some say that since it has privacy issues, Intel has dropeed embedding an id on its cpus
Any help regarding this matter is highly appreciated
