Someone on the AVS Forum posted a link to this video on YouTube. It was was uploaded on Dec 18th by Muslix64, a 26yr old Canadian. Apparently, he has
broken found away around the AACS copy protection of HD DVD.
“I was not aware of anyone having done that, so I did.
Have a look.
The AACS copy protection system is realy Unbreakable!
The program is a simple implementation of the aacs crypto protocol freely available on the net.
No reverse engineering!
Stay tuned for source code soon!
Merry Christmas everyone!

“AACS is unbreakable” is the title of the video and the total running time is 2:16. The author claims that it’s not about the software (which is written in Java), but it’s all about a config file — TKDB.cfg. It looks like there is some kind of hash keys for each crackable HD DVD title. What do you guys think… is this video real or fake? I just downloaded the source… I’ll see if it works.
Update: It looks like it should work… the hard part is getting the “Title Keys”.
The author writes:
-How do you extract the “Title keys”?
I won’t explain it in detail. Read the AACS doc first. You will understand.
The title keys are located on the disk in encrypted form, but for a
content to be played, it has to be decrypted! So where is the
decrypted version of the title key? Think about it…
