PS3 HDD Map Updated, Partial User Directory Unveiled!


265w ago - Recently, through reconstructing the PS3 HDD, sonyk has added some new details to the PS3 HDD Map we posted early last year.

Normally the infoboard files reside in the flash, and although it's still missing the subdirecties of user (as well as data, drm, mms, and vsh), those interested can check out the partial user directory available below:

Depending on the key type and length it may not take hundreds of years... the FBi and private organizations like Guidance Software use rainbow tables to hack even the hardest of encryption keys with "CUDA" google it we would have to get a driver for the rsx in linux to work or develop a program to do it more efficiently.. Plus my favorite Truecrypt isnt so secure anymore as well Google truecrypt security flaw. encryption can be defeated its how efficiently you can do it.. and at the present time it would be sloppy at best.

i was just curious on how the hard drive filsystem is layed out specifically i heard mention that there is no continuity to file placement? if the User content is available could $orny be using multiple file allocation methods to confuse pirates IE binary blobs instead of file headers?
Oh, my. Just putting together some random crypto-related words won't make things miraculously happen. You're just mixing things to make it look you know what you're talking about.

  • CUDA has been used to accelerate bruteforcing some alogirthms used in WiFi security (there are implementations of SETI@Home, Folding@Home, video encryption, etc. using CUDA as well)
  • Rainbow tables are used to accelerate some operations used in breaking some encryptions. It itself is not a technique for breaking any cipher.
  • Some of the ciphers are still believed to be strong enough to withstand even attempts of FBI and the likes.
  • To effectively employ these techniques you need to know what you're trying to break (i.e. what is the cipher, mode, etc.)
  • Continuous file placement? If you mean that one file resides on a series of sectors without gaps that is a thing that no filesystem can guarantee without great performance penalty (just try to think about it a bit harder and you'll see why). That is why this usually doesn't work like this and if you want to to ensure it is so, you need to defragment from time to time.

Because it would take many many years (like hundreds) - that is why.

Hi. I don't presume to know to much about anything, but, it it possible to find the encrypted key pair just using brute strength attack using a WHOLE bunch of computers connected with distributed computing? Like seti at home or that PS at home protein software?

I know this question is probably completely obviously unreasonable to most of you. but I don't understand why not.

Thanks for taking the time to help/inform/deal with me and other non-devs like me.

Do a search for the KeyVault project... it was investigated a year or so back, but was determined by the lead PS3 Devs (Gigi, Subdub, StrontiumDog) that it wouldn't end up working.
