Article on cracking AACS



January 31st, 2007

I was quoted in an article on cracking AACS encryption (as used on HD-DVD and Blu-ray discs) over on NewsFactor.

"The title keys that are used to decrypt the movies will reside somewhere in the PC's memory -- it's just a matter of finding them," explained Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, author of Internet blog PC Doctor. "Sure, programmers can try to be sneaky, but this will only slow down a determined hacker. It's not going to stop them."

What's also nice is being quoted alongside Ed Felton (Freedom to Tinker).
