New 3.56 Firmware Encryption Keys Found!!
New 3.56 Firmware Encryption Keys Found!! –
PS3 Dev's KakaRoTo, Rms and Adrianc appear to have already located the new encryption keys Sony implemented in Firmware Update 3.56.
UPDATE:The keys have now been pushed to KaKaRoTo's git repository and are now available for download.
Download here: http:// github.com/kakaroto/ps3keys
Snippit From IRC Converstion:
KaKaRoTo: nice... it's full of spkg files now .. probably a new crypted pkg format
KaKaRoTo: possibly with a new signature that only ps3swu.self can read, but without the ecdsa fail
KaKaRoTo: humm.. seems I was misled, there's no spkg files in 3.56
KaKaRoTo: ok, so they added a new .self file in the PUP
KaKaRoTo: and it seems it contains a key that we don't know about
KaKaRoTo: yeah, probably a newer ps3swu.self that is more secure
KaKaRoTo: but they kept the old one for people upgrading from older firmwares
KaKaRoTo: the new ps3swu.self probably decrypts and uses the new self
KaKaRoTo: ok, so we need new keys for everything now
KaKaRoTo: I just pushed to ps3tools and ps3utils, fixes to allow pup/puppack/pupunpack to identify the new files in the pup

rms: try it.
KaKaRoTo: rms, what's that blob you pasted ?
adrianc: the new key
KaKaRoTo: ha, cool
KaKaRoTo: rms, if you know how and can extract all the new keys, please do and send them to me so I can upload to my ps3keys repo
adrianc: the new keys are all in there
rms: KaKaRoTo: i believe it's a lv2ldr key
rms: erk/riv/pub its all in one block
rms: i forgot the order its in though, it should be in that, its been a while
KaKaRoTo: I don't even know how you did to find those keys
adrianc: its in the data section of the elf usually
rms: its really simple
adrianc: after that look for references for blocks of data
rms: really KaKaRoTo, i think even you could do it
rms: adrianc: or something out of place
adrianc: helps to compare to older versions where you already know the key position
rms: and has a set of 8 00s
adrianc: KaKaRoTo 3.56 key works?
KaKaRoTo: adrianc, didn't try, not planning on trying atm
KaKaRoTo: not until I have ~/.ps3/ files prepared for me by someone
KaKaRoTo: lv2 3.56 decrypted
KaKaRoTo: pushing to github.com/kakaroto/ps3keys
rms lv1 is also new
rms lv0 also
rms and also the spu stuff apparently
KaKaRoTo: humm.. I wonder who has the lv0 key
adrianc: i dont think lv0 is available
hummmm... that was quick! keep them coming guys great work
Well, so Sony changed all keys and we have to find them again - but so far it seems to be quite easy...
I assume that at this stage, the only reason you'd upgrade to 3.56 is to retain PSN access, and until games etc start coming out that require it, there is no need to hurry to test the new CFW's that are undoubtedly on their way?
Think i'll just remove the gateway on my PS3 and stay offline.
With the new 3.56 out, can you still update your games in the usual manner, just not get onto PSN obviously....?
You can download the updates from your PC and ftp them over to the PS3, so yeah, no need for PSN to update the games.
