Security vulnerabilities of DVB chipsets
The movie from Hack in The Box Amsterdam 2012 concentrates on the protection of movie and audio MPEG sources showed to readers via their set-top-boxes by a electronic satellite tv TV provider.
It talks about in detail the protection systems such as Conax depending access system with chipset coupling that is used by modern electronic satellite tv TV set-top-boxes to protect against set-top-box hijacking and unlawful giving / submission of a premium satellite tv TV material (TV programs and Movie on Demand movies).
It shows the procedure of discovering the inner technicalities of a plastic processor chip applying advanced DVB performance related to the MPEG sources deciphering and decryption. It shows the procedure of reverse technological innovation the training set of a completely unknown processor chip core included inside a DVB processor chip along with the steps that lead to the development of protection weaknesses in a chip’s design / execution.
Sample exploitation circumstances of discovered protection issues are also discussed for the purpose of showing what real security vulnerabilities of DVB chipsets chipsets can present for electronic satellite tv TV providers and material providers.
