back to article Intel confirms HDCP copy-protection crack

Intel has confirmed Blu-ray HDCP encryption is cracked after admitting a leaked master key is the real deal. High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) copy protection technology is designed to protect high-definition video content as it travels across digital interfaces. The technology was developed by Digital Content …

      I upvoted this because, well I had to.

      But the real truth is that you probably don't need a custom chip, just an FPGA. There will be boxes out to do this just like the ones that removed the copy bit from TOSLINK.

      Who needs speed anyway?

      Save the data stream to disk. Leave a decrypt running overnight.

      1. Wize


        Or even download the decrypted version that someone else has fixed up.

        The hi-def encryption can cause problems with devices that do not implement the protocols correctly (or implement the encryption at all). So the law abiding citizen may not be able to play their legal blu-ray at full quality, where pirate pete can play it on anything he wants to as full resolution.

        It leaves the question of why would people want to stick to the legal route, given the choice.

    If they weren't so arrogant and just admitted that all digital content protection was inevitably going to be broken people probably wouldn't work so hard on doing it, it would still get done but there wouldn't be that excellent "we told you so" motivation that drives a lot of the clever people that look at it who arn't driven by the potential rewards of piracy.

    Of course if they admitted that dcp/drm was inevitably going to be broken companies probably wouldn't buy into the stuff.

    It's a lot like the best way to keep a computer safe, turn it off, encase it in a concrete box, and bury it under several hundred meters of earth. This is similar to the best way to make sure a movie isn't pirated - don't make the movie, it's the only way to 100% guarantte it wont be pirated.

    Besides, forcing consumers off of standards and onto newer, less permissive ones makes the economy go 'round.

    Or, media producers can accept the reality that there's very little they can do to stem copying altogether and just settle for a partial answer for a number of years. (Fat chance of that happening.)

    Copy Protection

    I think that this will help re-enforce the message that "copy protection" doesn't work if enough people want to break it.

    IMHO they should give up on trying to copy-protect everything, but work out what the market as a whole is willing to pay, and sell for that price.

    If that price looks too low for the margins you want, re-think your business model. Stop paying the actors a gazillion dollars for each film, pay everyone a normal living wage the same as your customers earn, and watch copyright infrindement fall. (Oh and have simple click-to-download & buy websites, but NOT itunes) Get with Web2.0

      Copy protection doesn't work

      The market has already decided what it will pay... my son lives in merkin-land and me has as part of his cable package he has netflix, which enables him to queue up the films he wants to watch, and he has access to then until he wants to remove them from his list.

      And he's not limited to single films either, entire seasons wold count as 1 choice, e.g. South park season 8 would count as 1 choice.

    With HDCP cracked there is no need to deal with the moving target that is the Blueray DRM system (a virtual machine based decrypter that needs constant re-cracking as I understand).

        This isn't just about BD. HDCP is used for example as 'copy protection' on all HDMI streams. HDCP being cracked means you can record from HDMI without HDCP getting in the way and downsampling the video.

        Which is all manners of awesome for HTPCs to name but one application. Think HTPCs that can record from _any_ source that has an HDMI output with no degradation of quality in either video or audio. Or a tiny little box that has an HDMI input and an ethernet/wifi output that streams whatever it gets from the HDMI input to a multicast address on your home lan. Instant multi output viewing of any video source with HDMI output.

      no need to re-encrypt just to keep HDMI screens happy, they will take unencrypted video no probs. Why wouldn't they? - its quite possible that they are displaying customer-owned presentation material, for shows, concerts, launches, presentations etc.

      Fundamentally, every copyright protection scheme has one huge massive secret, which if found compromises the entire system. It always gets found because it is so valuable.

        Steam works because it's massively more convenient than pirating, not because it has uncrackable DRM (It doesn't).

Can't be assed to drive out to that part of town again where traffic is a major hassle just to get a legal copy of the game and pay for it by credit card. And since it applies to all R* games, I don't expect to own a copy of Duke Nukem Forever either.

          Don't get me wrong. Steam is okay, it's the region coding part that fails epicly for me.

            Stream is not a DRM scheme, it is a marketing tool, it kept offering me free game demos.

            Note that I speak in the past tense.

            I've said it before, my PC, my Broadband, I own the battlefield, so THQ and every other games producer that uses stream, you can shove your fucking games up your arse while you are using that stream shit.....

      I think the Sky Digital system is still unhacked in the sense of a download-the-bitstream-and-watch-it-without-any-kind-of-smartcard. I get the feeling various ways exist but you need a *real* smart card of some kind (not necessarily yours) to get the party started.

          There is demand for break SKY smartcards, problem is NDS are too quick fixing the damn thing whenever it does get cracked. They have many versions of the encryption just waiting to be used...

            "Demand → # ↑"

            Exactly. It might not be *your* idea of ideal viewing but a *lot* of people fork out substantial green on a regular basis for Mr R's "Product."

            Quite a few would like to pay out quite a lot less *if* they could do so with an assured supply.

            IIRC the outfit behind this kit is based in Israel and is run/owned/pays 1 third of the group behind the RSA PK algorithm (The A off hand) and have a bunch of patents issued to them. Indications suggest its at least a 2048 bit key (the last time I looked the biggest prime number factored is equal to about 336 bits). Obvious approaches would be to run off line by streaming *all* Sky digital HD to multiple digital tape drives (2TB a tape) and brute force decoders (see the book about cracking DES for example)

            I suppose you could also await (or force in some way) the decoder software to be updated over the air (if you can find the datastream) and study that. Obviously it it turns out to be the machine code to a totally bespoke proprietary processor you'd be screwed.

            Note these are merely commonly suggested approaches which are obvious to anyone with a few minutes thought on the subject and of course I would *never* encourage wholesale copyright violation for gain. It is quite a good subject for a software (or hardware) design excercise.

    You don't need to re-encrypt

    HDMI works without HDCP

    The raw data rate is about 2.5 Gbps though.

  23. Mashiara

    HDCP does not protect BD (alone)

    Some have hinted at it but IMO it has not been made clear enough: HDCP does not protect Blu-Ray Disks (BD), it's link-level protocol to encrypt the raw, uncompressed (~5 gbit/s for 1080p + 8ch audio) video and audio stream, meaning about 1-2TB / movie, now, TB class disks are not exactly impossibly expensive but you need a proper RAID setup to be able to write fast enough to keep up with the stream (also some sort of HW to read the stream from the wire is required)

    Anyway I'm fairly sure cracking the BD level protection continues to be the preferred way for normal users to backup/format shift their HD content. The "real pirates" get their content from unencrypted master sources anyway so nothing new there as well.

    HDCP only would make sense if it was possible to make the disk/player level DRM systems so strong that going through "link hole" would be easier than cracking the DRM for those that wish to do format shifting/backup of disks they already have (again: pirated HD material is readily available in the internet in any case, and it's a sad state of affairs when the "pirates" have so much better product than the "real deal")

      Anyway 100%,

      also any system where the KEY also has to live in public domain is doomed. ALL DRM is doomed to fail since inherently the players have to have keys.

      Given the raw data rate this is less important /critical than encryption of the actual disk or broadcast. A GPU won't do it. But a custom chip that has MPEG4 ethernet and HDMI clear pass through is not only possible but inevitable.

      The Displays all have to have a key and decrypt it. Those are all with the public.

    HDCP master key compromise does not mean BluRay is now 'wide open'. It just opens the market to unlicensed widget builders to create HDCP removing widgets, which will let me plug a BluRay player into my HDTV or old Dell 2405 monitor (neither of which are HDCP capable).

    Not that I care to, because Hi-Def is OK, but not really brilliant until you get a 42"+ display. Which are all HDCP compliant anyway.

    If this had been announced prior to 2005, it would have been a big deal.

    Not necessary anyway, there are several commercial 'front end' chips out there that strip the protection and leave an unencrypted stream easily accessible inside a TV set, just a matter of finding an HD TV that uses them (and it's not difficult).

    Old-timers do it...

    ...with cameras. Now get a HI-def camera, film it from a perfectly tuned Hi-def display, and there is no single DRM scheme from here to the farthest depths of hell that will be able to block it, either past, present, or unimagined yet.

    Stick the decrypting chip inside someone's cornea (or retina, whatever), and somebody else will happily plug their eyes out to get the thing decrypted. Well, not so happily, but are you getting the idea? If you can see it, so a camera; if you can hear it, so a microphone. There is no way around this inescapable fact.

    If you can view it coming from a TV, at some point inside the said TV, the HD content was decrypted, and that's where you can begin to extract the protected content, there is no way to avoid it, even if it is behind each pixel in a LCD screen built for this purpose. No matter you must record the raw feed, it is TB in size, it takes Gbps of bandwidth to copy it on the fly, somebody will try it. Try it have success on it, copy it back in an unencrypted disk and release it.

    Oh, the BD-disc-DRM was not broken yet? It is just a matter of time.

    The whole encryption idea should be dropped, as a whole, btw.

      Look at the Cinavia protection. _If_ this was in all players, then copying with a microphone and camera would not work (yet!), as the watermark would still be captured, and it is surprising resilient to audio changes.

    For Crying Out Loud

    When are people going to learn that copy prevention is impossible?

    Not just very difficult, like flying to the moon or finding the prime factors of a large number; but actually demonstrably mathematically impossible, like building a perpetual motion machine or dividing by zero. And this is a limitation of the universe, as opposed to a limitation of present technology. There is simply nothing that anyone could ever invent that would make copy prevention possible.

    What it comes down to is three things. The person who made the recording cannot know in advance that the person playing it back is not making a recording; the decryption key is right alongside the cyphertext; and you only have to be able to make one copy to be able to make an infinite number of copies.

    Every penny that has ever been spent on copy prevention has been wasted. And as long as the media companies keep falling for snake oil and paying royalties on useless patents, it will be the likes of me and thee who have to keep picking up the tab. Meanwhile, the first person who twigs that making pirate copies is *not* zero-cost, and prices their output just below the point at which it's simply not worth the bother of trying to copy it, is going to get seriously rich. Because if you can get 10 000 people pay 10p for something that would cost them a pound to make for themselves, you've still earned as much as you would if you could get 100 people to pay £10 for it (and the other 9990 people would be ripping off copies anyway).

    1. Christopher Key.

      Little more than a licence fee

      In my opinion, HDCP was never about copy protection. It was simply a way for a dominant group of companies to extract a license fee from anyone wishing to produce display devices.

      A skilful individual may well be able to extract the keys from his television, and hence build his own HDCP capable display device, and I doubt that anyone would be too concerned. However, if he then starts mass producing and selling said display device, the keys are at risk of being revoked, yielding angry customers and a crippling lawsuit from the manufacturer of the television from which he obtained his keys. Far easier just to play nicely, pay for a legitimate set of HDCP keys, and pass the cost on to the consumer.

      CSS and AACS, in my opinion serve a similar purpose. Until CSS was cracked, anyone wishing to build and sell DVD players would have had to pay for a CSS licence. Even now, I suspect that they need to pay for a licence to avoid the risk of being sued / prosecuted under the DMCA or equivalent. Likewise, anyone wishing to build and sell Bluray players needs to pay for a licence and set of keys. They could use a set of keys trivially extracted from a software player, but these keys are likely to be revoked, leaving the player useless with new releases. Again, far easier just to behave.

      I would be very interested to know how the cost of developing these 'copy protection' schemes compares with the licensing revenue that the bring in. My guess would be that the latter outweighs the former by a substantial margin. It is of course the consumer that ends up paying, but that's always going to be the case.

      One final point. I entirely agree that copy protection is broken by design: you cannot give someone encrypted data and a device to decrypt it, and then expect them not to be able to duplicate that device themselves. However, it will always take them a finite time to do it. Therefore, if Hollywood wishes to protect New Release, they simply need to 'refresh' the AACS keys used to encrypt it, and there will be a period where the only way to watch New Release is by buying the disc. If, as suggested elsewhere, commercial pirates are not dependent on the released disc, instead having access alternative sources, then all Hollywood have achieved is to force me to use my original disc to watch New Release for a short while, before I can extract the data and store the original.

    RE: Erm .... so what

    The blackmagic (or Haupage or AvertMedia) can only grab 1080i.

    To grab full 1080p@60 you need some serious broadcast quality gear - Matrox's one is $3800 plus $5000 development license for the SDK plus $500/year runtime.

    1. Anonymous Coward


      But if all you want is to interface your sat box to a HTPC/MCPC, then 1080i will suffice. There's no station transmitting in 1080p yet.

      Still, a BlackMagic intensity will adhere to HDCP signals and block recording copy-protected shows. You'll still need a HDCP signal stripper (which does not exist as of this time) or go around it by dropping back to analog HD by means of a descrambler (which, contrary to what the digital companies wants you to believe, isn't really bad at all).
