Intel HDCP technology cracked with 200EUR FPGA

Posted on Monday, November 28 2011 @ 23:25:31 CET by


DailyTech reports researchers have defeated Intel's HDCP DRM scheme with a ~200EUR FPGA, the Xilinx ATLYS.
Even as other content protection schemes were defeated, HDCP hung strong. But in 2010, the master key leaked for HDCP giving the world the first hope of cracking the scheme. But Intel reassured its partners that they had nothing to worry about -- they laughed that unless would-be hardware hackers "made a computer chip" the scheme would be safe. The only thing they forgot about was the growing amount of cheap reprogrammable chips known as field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), which allow you to quickly make and test chip designs in software.

Using an ATLYS board manufactured by a company named Digilent, researchers at the Ruhr-Universit├Ąt Bochum (RUB) -- a college in the town of Bochum, located roughly 2 hr. and 15 min. northwest of Frankfurt -- were able to carry out a-man-in-the-middle attack, with the FPGA posing as a legitimate interface chip and going undetected.
