Muse! When we learned to
count, little did we know all
the things we could do
some day by shuffling
those numbers: Pythagoras
said "All is number"
long before he saw
computers and their effects,
or what they could do
by computation,
naive and mechanical
fast arithmetic.
It changed the world, it
changed our consciousness and lives
to have such fast math
available to
us and anyone who cared
to learn programming.
Now help me, Muse, for
I wish to tell a piece of
controversial math,
for which the lawyers
of DVD CCA
don't forbear to sue:
that they alone should
know or have the right to teach
these skills and these rules.
(Do they understand
the content, or is it just
the effects they see?)
And all mathematics
is full of stories (just read
Eric Temple Bell);
and CSS is
no exception to this rule.
Sing, Muse, decryption
once secret, as all
knowledge, once unknown: how to
decrypt DVDs.
Arrays' elements
start with zero and count up
from there, don't forget!
Integers are four
bytes long, or thirty-two bits,
which is the same thing.
To decode these discs,
you need a master key, as
hardware vendors get.
(This is a "player
key" and some folks other than
vendors know them now.
If they didn't, there
is also a way not to
need one, to start off.)
You'll read a "disk key"
from the disc, and decrypt it
with that player key.
You'll read a "title
key" for the video file
that you want to play.
With the disk key, you
can decrypt the title key;
that decrypts the show.
Here's a description
of how a player key will
decrypt a disk key.
You need two things here:
An encrypted disk key, which
is just six bytes long.
(Only five of those
are the _key itself_, because
"zero" marks the end.
So that's five real bytes,
and eight times five is forty;
in the ideal case,
forty bits will yield
just short of two trillion
possible choices!
Ian Goldberg once
recovered a key that long
in seven half-hours.
But his office-mate
David Wagner points out that
it's _impossible_
to achieve what the
DVD CCA seems
to want to achieve,
even by making
the key some reasonable,
"adequate" key-length:
There's no way to write
a "secure" software player
which contains the key
and runs on PCs,
yet somehow prevents users
from extracting it.
If the player can
decrypt, Wagner has noted,
users can learn how.)
This is a pointer,
"KEY", to those bytes, and when we're
done, they'll be clear-text.
Oh, the other thing!
Called "im", a pointer to six
bytes: a player key.
(Now those six bytes, the
DVD CCA says
under penalty
of perjury, are
its trade secret, and you are
breaking the law if
you tell someone that,
for instance, the Xing player
used the following:
Eighty-one; and then
one hundred three -- two times; then
two hundred (less three);
two hundred twenty
four; and last and not least,
the humble zero.)
We will use these few
internal variables:
t1 through t6,
unsigned integers.
k, pointer to five unsigned
bytes. i, integer.
So here's how you do
it: first, take the first byte of
im -- that's byte zero;
OR that byte with the
number 0x100
(hexadecimal --
that's two hundred and
fifty-six to you if you
prefer decimal).
Store the result in
t1. Take byte one of im.
Store it in t2.
Take bytes two through five
of im; store them in t3.
Take its three low bits
(you can get them by
ANDing t3 with seven);
store this in t4.
Double t3, add
eight, subtract t4; store the
result in t3.
Make t5 zero.
Now we'll start a loop; set i
equal to zero.
i gets values from
zero up to four; each time,
do all of these steps:
Use t2 for an
index into Table Two:
find a byte b1.
Use t1 for an
index into Table Three:
find a byte b2.
Take exclusive OR
of b1 with b2 and
store this in t4.
Shift t1 right by
a single bit (like halving);
store this in t2.
Take the low bit of
t1 (so, AND it with one),
shift it left eight bits,
then take exclusive
OR of that with t4; store
this back in t1.
Use t4 for an
index into Table Four:
find a byte and store
it back in t4.
Shift t3 right by three bits,
take exclusive OR
of this with t3,
shift this right by one bit, and
take exclusive OR
of this with t3,
shift this right by eight bits, and
take exclusive OR
of this with t3,
shift this right by five bits, and
(No exclusive OR!
Orange you glad I
didn't say banana?) take
the low byte (by AND
with two hundred and
fifty-five); now store this
into t6. Phew!
Shift t3 left eight
bits, take OR with t6, and
store this in t3.
Use t6 for an
index into Table Four:
find a byte and store
it in t6. Add
t6, t5, t4; store
the sum in t5.
Take t5's low byte
(AND t5 with two hundred
fifty five) to put it
in the ith byte of
the vector called k. Now shift
t5 right eight bits;
store the result in
t5 again. Now that's the
last step in the loop.
No sooner have we
finished that loop than we'll start
another; no rest
for the wicked nor
those innocents whom lawyers
serve with paperwork.
Reader! Think not that
technical information
ought not be called speech;
think not diagrams,
schematics, tables, numbers,
formulae -- like the
terrifying and
uniquely moving, though cliche,
Einstein equation
"Energy is just
the same as matter, but for
a little factor,
speed of light by speed
of light, and we are ourselves
frozen energy."
Einstein's formula
to convert from joules into
kilogram-meters
squared per second squared,
for all its power, uses
just five characters.
But Einstein wrote to
physicists: formal, concise,
specific, detailed.
And sometimes we write
to machines to teach them how
tasks are carried out:
and sometimes we write
to our friends to show a way
tasks are carried out.
We write precisely
since such is our habit in
talking to machines;
we say exactly
how to do a thing or how
every detail works.
The poet has choice
of words and order, symbols,
imagery, and use
of metaphor. She
can allude, suggest, permit
ambiguities.
She need not say just
what she means, for readers can
always interpret.
Poets too, despite
their famous "license" sometimes
are constrained by rules:
How often have we
heard that some strange twist of plot
or phrase was simply
"Metri causa", for
the meter's sake, solely done
"to fit the meter"?
Programmers' art as
that of natural scientists
is to be precise,
complete in every
detail of description, not
leaving things to chance.
Reader, see how yet
technical communicants
deserve free speech rights;
see how numbers, rules,
patterns, languages you don't
yourself speak yet,
still should in law be
protected from suppression,
called valuable speech!
Ending my appeal
on that note, I will describe
the second loop. Store
nine in i; i gets
values from nine down to
naught. Each time, do this:
Use i+1 as
an index into Table
Zero: find a byte.
Call that byte p1.
Now use i for an index
in Table Zero:
find a byte and
call that byte p0. Now
use p1 as an
index into k
(a vector, remember?); thus
find a byte b1.
Use p1 as an
index into KEY, as well:
find a byte, use that
byte as an index
into Table One. Call the
byte you find b2.
Use p0 as
an index into KEY to
find a byte b3.
Take exclusive OR
of b1, b2, b3,
and store that in KEY
(not just anywhere,
though!). In KEY at the byte that's
indexed by p1.
That's it for that loop
and also for the task of
disk key decryption.
Title keys are next.
It isn't hard to decrypt
one. The rule's the same!
Well, there's one slight
change: where you use t6, it's
Table "Five", not "Four".
And this time im is
the decrypted disk key, and
KEY the title key.
How would you like to
hear how to decrypt _both_ the
disk and title keys?
All we'll need are the
encrypted versions and a
player key. No sweat!
We'll call the title
key TKEY, a pointer to
six bytes, encrypted.
We'll call the disk key
DKEY, a pointer to six
bytes, encrypted too.
We will use a few
internal variables,
once again: so i,
an integer, will
serve again as loop index.
im1 is six bytes,
im2 is six bytes.
Both vectors and the latter
holds our player key.
Now I told you once
about a player key I
think they gave to Xing --
I don't know this for
sure; DVD CCA
said so in court, though.
Otherwise I'd say
that this is just a "magic
number" from on high,
vouchsafed to mortals
from the mouths of the Muses
for our benefit.
In reality
I'm told it was discovered
by M.o.R.E.,
some Europeans
two-thirds of whom are today
still anonymous.
I don't want to make
a long excursus right now
on why that's not bad:
reverse engineers
in many fields are heroes
of technology,
for advancing the
knowledge of their colleagues or
of the public mind.
Yet in software the
recent trend has been to brand
tinkerers as thieves!
I urge you to read
the Crypto-gram newletter
on why that's not so.
Bruce can make the point
better there than I can here,
sticking to haiku.
So this number is,
again, the player key:
(trade secret haiku?)
"Eighty-one; and then
one hundred three -- two times; then
two hundred (less three);
two hundred twenty
four; and last and not least,
the humble zero."
If you didn't know
a valid player key, then
you could find one out --
ask Frank Stevenson,
or his fellow programmer
wise Andreas Bogk.
All we have to do
is this: copy our DKEY
into im1,
use the rule above
that decrypts a disk key (with
im1 and its
friend im2 as
inputs) -- thus we decrypt the
disk key im1.
Use the rule above
that decrypts a title key.
TKEY and our new
disk key im1
are inputs now -- we decrypt
TKEY, and we're done.
That was straightforward.
Probably we didn't need
to explain this part,
but computers are
very literal, so we
might as well do so.
This part is really
exciting for movie fans:
decrypt DVDs!
Well, at least sectors
of DVDs, but they are
made up of sectors.
Sectors (of two to
the eleventh bytes) are the
encryption units.
Rejoice then, get some
popcorn out, and butter if
you aren't vegan.
Margarine works well
if you're vegan, or if you
are watching your weight.
I've heard you can put
tarragon on your popcorn.
I haven't tried it.
Why did I tell you
to rejoice? Because we are
about to watch a
movie, at least if
we have a good MPEG-2
player close at hand.
We need two things now,
though, beyond our MPEG-2
players and popcorn:
A vector "SEC" of
two thousand forty-eight bytes,
disk sector contents.
(These start off in their
encrypted form, but we will
leave them decrypted.)
And a vector KEY
of six bytes, the decrypted
title key we'll use.
We will use these few
internal variables:
t1 through t6,
unsigned integers.
Remember those from before?
END is a pointer
to the end of the
sector, which is SEC plus two
thousand forty-eight.
Take the first byte of
KEY (that's byte zero), perform
exclusive OR with
byte eighty-four of
SEC. Treating the result as
an integer, take
OR of that with two
hundred fifty-six. Store the
result in t1.
Take the next byte (which
is byte one) of KEY, perform
exclusive OR with
the next byte of SEC
(byte eighty-five, right?); store the
result in t2.
Take bytes two through five
of KEY and take exclusive
OR of these with their
counterparts abroad,
bytes eighty-six through eighty-nine
of our sector SEC.
Store this in t3.
(It will fit because it is
four bytes, like t3.)
I must quote myself
because we're going to do
some things once again:
(Above, in the first
part, we talked about t3:)
"Take its three low bits
(you can get them by
ANDing t3 with seven);
store this in t4.
Double t3, add
eight, subtract t4; store the
result in t3."
(Now increment SEC
by one hundred twenty-eight!)
"Make t5 zero."
Now start a loop, and
do these things as long as SEC
doesn't equal END:
Use t2 for an
index into Table Two:
find a byte b1.
Use t1 for an
index into Table Three:
find a byte b2.
Take exclusive OR
of b1 with b2 and
store this in t4.
Shift t1 right by
a single bit (like halving);
store this in t2.
Take the low bit of
t1 (so, AND it with one),
shift it left eight bits,
then take exclusive
OR of that with t4; store
this back in t1.
(The step that's coming
up is _slightly_ different from
the original.)
Use t4 for an
index into Table Five:
find a byte and store
it back in t4.
Shift t3 right by three bits,
take exclusive OR
of this with t3,
shift this right by one bit, and
take exclusive OR
of this with t3,
shift this right by eight bits, and
take exclusive OR
of this with t3,
shift this right by five bits, and
(No exclusive OR!
Orange you glad I
didn't say banana?) take
the low byte (by AND
with two hundred and
fifty-five); now store this
into t6. Phew!
Shift t3 left eight
bits, take OR with t6, and
store this in t3.
Use t6 for an
index into Table Four:
find a byte and store
it in t6. Add
t6, t5, t4; store
the sum in t5.
(Again, here's a change
from the original steps:
please don't get confused.)
In Table One use
the byte SEC points to as an
index, get a byte
there, take exclusive
OR of that byte with the low
byte of t5; store
the result where SEC
points, and increment SEC by
one. This is all that
has changed in these steps.
And we're almost done! Now shift
t5 right eight bits;
store the result in
t5 again. That is the
last step in the loop.
Now I want a drink
(mnemonics in crypto poems
are great!); exercise
from singing so long
makes me thirst for a glass of
soda, slice of pie.
For this is the end
of the decryption process;
you can now go home.
But wait! I hear a
voice entreating me to stay:
"O, the Tables tell!"
Alas, I have not
as yet declared to you the
CSS Tables.
This is a major
issue, in that I don't know
what these tables _mean_:
our noble guide has
told us in outline what they
are for, or something
of their structure. But
to me, a humble poet
of mathematics,
they are opaque, they
are certain combinations
of ancient, noble
Number. Their inner
logic, aitia, telos,
still unknown to me.
Herein a clear free
speech question: would courts see fit
to muzzle me, then,
from speaking numbers,
technical data, which I
did not make and more
cannot memorize,
cannot explain in detail,
cannot understand?
I have these numbers.
They have meaning, this is clear:
else why suppress them?
I wish to speak or
let the Muse announce through me
Tables of Numbers.
Professor Moglen!
Help defend my right to share
these numbers with you!
You called the right to
speak with PGP like that
to use Navaho.
Help me then in my
haiku quest to share these bits,
and not be censored.
Preserve my right to
speak here, in this extreme, these
mystery Tables
the products, pieces
of technique, which but a very
few will understand.
Mary Jo White, the
United States Attorney
for S.D.N.Y.,
your logic erodes
any meaningful power
Internet speakers
would retain against
state censorship. Do you care?
Have you any shame?
Fight, brave amici,
with effective, functional
argumentation.
I'll try to help by
singing these octets, until
court orders forbid.
(Sad to say, I have
removed hyphens in numbers:
poetic license.)

Table Three repeats
itself sixty-four times with
this eight-byte sequence:

hundred fifty five).
