111w ago - PlayStation 3 developers have been busy recently working on payloads for dumping the PS3 per console keys, as once the per_console_key_0 is obtained with full EID decryption dongles and burned BR-D's may be a thing of the past.
Below are details from sphinxkoma and the PS3 Wiki (ps3devwiki.com/index.php?title=Talk:Per_Console_Keys) on dumping the per_console_key_1 via Kaz... it's only a matter of time for per_console_key_0 which unlocks everything we need.
To quote: PS3 Per Console Keys
EID crypto is very complicated, it is done so on purpose. first of all EID0 isn't decrypted with one key, and one algorithm alone. it is decrypted in several parts which use different algos and keys. the keys are all derivations of a per console key (per_console_key_1) which is stored inside metldr and copied by it to sector 0 and never leaves isolation. that same key is a derivation of the per console key (per_console_key_0) used to encrypt metldr and the bl in the first place as well.
isoldr clears that key from sector 0 before jumping to the isolated module. but before doing so it encrypts it with another keyset and stores it in a buffer so that the isolated module can use the new crafted key. since the operation is AES, if you know that keyset you can decrypt...
