VB.NET 2005 Compact ??" Secure Windows app login form and strategy. I need a secure log-in form for an existing Visual Basic 2005 application written for Pocket PC 2003 2nd edition and Windows Mobile 2005. The log-in form must prevent unauthorized access to the application. Please suggest any other considerations for securing the application with your proposal including obfuscation technologies, cryptography, working in kiosk mode or any software licensing technology you would recommend.

Please feel free to ask questions. I cannot send the actual application because of confidentiality.
