Just a few days ago, a master key for the HDCP protocol was published , which supposedly allowed you to create valid keys for any devices. And now, Intel confirms to FOX and CNET that this key is real: “We confirm that we tested this master key and were able to create keys for equipment that work with keys created by our security technology. So this hack seems to work. ”
Given that these words come from the company that developed and promoted the protocol, we can say that the information is as reliable as possible.

If Intel is worried about the potential damage to copywriters and a new stream of high-quality pirated content, it doesn’t show: “To use this key, you will need to create a chip that will be soldered into a special piece of hardware. That is not very real in the near future. ”

We will see :)
