The "code" exists only on the server. They'd pretty much have to have Admin rights (I think) for that. And with that being the case, the security of your code is not as important as your entire site.

Microsoft has a free asp script encoder that will keep casual viewers out of your asp code on the server, but it's easily circumvented by anyone who really wants to see the code.
To really protect code you can rewrite it in a language you can compile to a COM object that can subsequently be used by your asp pages.
