CADVault allows AutoCAD® users to secure
both graphical and non-graphical elements within an AutoCAD drawing file by
embedding those elements into an electronic vault object. The vault object
is a self contained graphical entity that
can place restrictions on how the embedded elements may be used or exposed
depending on the credentials of the person using the drawing file.
