[Interest] Unique - Hardware bound - ID

I'm looking for an easy way to get a unique ID for the system my software is running on.
We need this ID to be absolutely unique so we can identify each running system and assing stuff to it.

So far I found a few linux specific ways to get "some" IDs, which I think can be sufficient but surely not the best solution.
e.g. demidecode, hdparm, sdparm, /proc/foo

Is there a Qt-way of doing this stuff? Platform independent would be great but is not a must.
If you know the right linux dependent way of doing this, help would be much appreciated.

Freundliche Grüsse / Best Regards / Meilleures salutations
