I am wondering whether the SetLicenseKey() method (or any other method call related to the licensing procedure) accesses the internet in some way.

We are actually analyzing the behavior of our software (it uses SecureBlackbox) and found some unexplainable Internet activity.

Thank you for contacting us.

Neither SetLicenseKey() nor any other parts of SecureBlackbox do access the Internet without user consent. In other words, the components only access the network layer if explicitly told to do that by the components' user (by, say, calling the Open() method of TElSimpleFTPSClient class).

What exactly components are you using and what kind of activity are you noticing? If it's .NET edition, the OS sometimes needs to refresh its CRL/certificates cache before loading signed assemblies, so it might be the framework that goes for the update. Just a guess.
