EC funds new smartcard anti-piracy study


Guest

Recommended Posts

The European Commission has announced the award of a multi-million Euro contract to a number of companies and universities, including the University of Sussex in the UK, as part of its on-going anti-piracy campaign. It appears that commercial broadcasters in particular, have become increasingly frustrated with the continued success of hackers in cracking codes and disseminating information. The EU's Protection of Encrypted Services Directive is widely regarded as having failed to provide the expected protection against piracy, especially as national police have switched their attention back to other pressing issues, after an initial burst of anti-piracy enthusiasm. The focus of the new funding is on the development of more secure cards. The cards will be both more sophisticated in their encryption and contain anti-tamper mechanisms, capable of destroying both the card and any unauthorized electronics used in attempting to read or copy it. The intention is to start commercial production of the new cards within the next 24 months.
