Macrovision announced its new DVD version of SafeDisc at E3 today. SafeDisc-DVD protects DVD-ROMs from unauthorized copying. SafeDisc is a software-based solution that does not require any changes to the publisher's application code and is compatible with standard PC or Mac environments and CD/DVD-ROM hardware. It is comprised of authenticating digital signatures embedded on the disc, an encryption wrapper, and various anti-hacking technologies that secure the CD/DVD-ROM executable. The patented SafeDisc digital signatures are added to each original disc during the mastering/replication process and prevent copying by standard optical disc writers. SafeDisc is comprised of three main feature-modules: - An encrypted wrapper, using the SafeDisc Toolkit. - Anti-hacking software, which is added at the time of encrypting the application. - A digital signature, which is added at the time of mastering and is required to decrypt and run the application. With a number of security options available, SafeDisc DVD is very flexible. It can be set up to require the original DVD-ROM be present in the DVD drive each time the main application is accessed, or for the DVD-ROM to be inserted after a specified number of days. The configuration can also be formatted to lock the application to a particular PC, so that the DVD-ROM is only required for installation.
