Up to current moment it is actual to lock trustworthy cryptographic services of the complex product providing information security services. These cryptographic services, as usual, are included in as part of delivering complex product and must not be activated without proper additional license.

In this article, we provide a method of cryptographic services locking and a protocol of its activation including a legal customer authentication.

The main reason of this work is that the law of some countries prepends to export complex information security products with available cryptographic tools.
