|SafeDisc v3 uses an key to encrypt the main executable (EXE or DLL) and creates a corresponding digital signature which is added to the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM when they are replicated. The size of the digital signature varies from 3 to 20 MB depending how good the encryption must be. The authentication process takes about 10 to 20 seconds.
SafeDisc v3 is capable of encrypting multiple executables over one or more CD/DVD media's, as long as the executables are encrypted with the same key and the digital signature is added to each media.
SafeDisc v3 supports Virtual Drives as long as the original CD/DVD is available! Once the CD has been authenticated the game should continue to run from the virtual drive (as long as the virtual drive software has not been blacklisted...).
- Unique instance-based security that creates individual new security system for each title, and an improved code masking technology which can be used to thwart hackers from reverse-engineering Macrovision copy protection out of a protected application.
- Robust SafeDisc security API (Application Programming Interface) with “Intelligent Protected Functions (PFNs)” and improved interface, allowing faster and more effective implementation.
- New unique signature for each title to foil copying to even the most advanced optical disc burners.
