Encryption for Digital Music
Three mathematicians have a patent they say will make it
impractical -- if not impossible -- to infringe copyrighted
data like digital music.
The mathematicians, Jeffrey Hoffstein and Jill Pipher, both of Pawtucket,
R.I., and Joseph Silverman of Needham, Mass., patented a system they said
could quickly encode every second of a data stream with a different encryption
key. That means that a typical three-minute song could be scrambled into 180
different codes; anyone taking the time to break a single code would be
rewarded with only one second of music.
