PACE ANTI-PIRACY, INC. REAFFIRMS SUPPORT FOR 64-BIT APPLE APPLICATIONS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 10, 2019, San Jose, California.

PACE Anti-Piracy, Inc., a leading License Management and Application Protection platform, today reaffirms their commitment to compatibility with 64-bit Mac applications.

Apple first warned developers in 2017 that updates to macOS after High Sierra would not run 32-bit apps ‘without compromise’. 64-bit has been required for both app submissions and app updates to the Mac App Store since January 1, 2018. To notify users of the upcoming changes, an alert dialogue in macOS was added in early 2018.

App is not optimaixed for your Mac. Warning dialog

Fast forward to today. With the public beta of the next major version of macOS, macOS Catalina now here, it's no surprise that Apple is dropping support for 32-bit apps.

Why is Apple dropping support for 32-bit apps in macOS Catalina?

Here's what Apple has to say on the subject:

“A State-of-the-art technology is what makes a Mac a Mac. All modern Macs include powerful 64-bit processors, and macOS runs advanced 64-bit apps, which can access dramatically more memory and enable faster system performance. The technologies that define today's Mac experience—such as Metal graphics acceleration—work only with 64-bit apps. To ensure that the apps you purchase are as advanced as the Mac you run them on, all future Mac software will eventually be required to be 64-bit.

Apple began the transition to 64-bit hardware and software technology for Mac over a decade ago, and is working with developers to transition their apps to 64-bit.”

So where does that leave software companies that have delayed releasing 64-bit Mac applications because their legacy licensing system is not 64-bit compatible? Well, the short answer is scrambling for a modern alternative to dongle-based licensing systems that were designed in the last century. Based on the inquiries we have received to-date, in addition to the soon to be retired DevMate licensing system, we are led to believe that many popular licensing systems, including the Thalas Gemalto Sentinel product, are not 64-bit compatible.

If your company hasn’t updated its licensing and application protection systems in the last few years, Apple is now giving you a compelling reason to request the budget to revamp those antiquated solutions. It’s not a secret that many of the best-known legacy licensing solutions suffer from well-understood security cracks, are at best keeping honest people honest, and are often just creating headaches for you, your staff, and your customers. Now is a great time to finally adopt a more modern solution.

Please contact us. PACE has been providing licensing and application protection solutions to Apple application developers since 2010, we have the technology and experience to make transitioning to a modern streamlined licensing and application protection solution painless, and the cost of our technology is likely no more than your company is already investing in your current solution.

PACE Anti-Piracy Announces End-to-End Robust Anti-Tamper Support for Apple Silicon

PACE Anti-Piracy Inc., is pleased to announce full Native Apple Silicon support. After significant development and rigorous testing, iLok copy protection tools are now fully Apple Silicon compatible. The latest license support software update now includes full M1 support, along with existing support for Intel-based Mac OS systems. This release enables plug-in makers and publishers to update their products that have native M1 support with full license protection.

“We knew our publishers were keen on taking advantage of M1 Pro and M1 Pro Max devices and its impact on the creative community and their workflows. This was a top priority for our engineering team - and it was a big job. We are really happy about this release.” said Allen Cronce, CEO PACE Anti-Piracy, regarding the announcement.

In addition, if you are using iLok License Manager version 5.5 or newer, you can now request a machine activation reset from within iLok License Manager. The publisher will still need to approve the request.

iLok is part of the PACE Anti-Piracy licensing platform which enables publishers to distribute their licenses securely via cloud, machine, or iLok hardware. Secure license distribution also requires different layers of protection, including a high security tamper-protection solution called Fusion. The work surrounding Fusion was very complex and required significant changes at the OS Level.

PACE Anti-Piracy Raises the Bar in White-Box Encryption Protection for Bank, PSP, and Payment Scheme Applications

Next-gen ‘White-Box Works’ code generator launches complete with EMVCo Software-Based Mobile Payment security evaluation certificate

1st March 2022 - San Jose, California - Banks, payment service providers (PSPs), schemes, and other financial institutions can now benefit from a uniquely high level of sensitive data protection and application attack resistance, following today’s launch of White-Box Works, a next-generation EMVCo-evaluated White-Box code generator, from PACE Anti-Piracy. 

Unlike traditional solutions, White-Box Works gives the customer complete, independent control over their protected code, ensuring their encryption keys and proprietary algorithms never leave the customer’s premises. White-Box Works can transform any C-code into a protected white-box variant in a single step, offering unparalleled flexibility, security, and efficiency.

This level of in-house control also promises to increase operational efficiency for the customer, since they are no longer beholden to a white-box library vendor’s build schedule and can develop their application in accordance with their internal schedules. It also enables the customer to use, replace and update their deployed encryption keys and algorithms at will, with no need to re-engage PACE Anti-Piracy, or any other third-party vendor, to do so. 

White-Box Works has been designed to defeat a variety of sophisticated attacks, including those involving reverse engineering, fault injection, and advanced statistical analysis (such as Differential Computation Analysis).

White-Box Works outputs code that has been designed to defeat a range of attacks to which many encryption-dependent financial apps remain vulnerable, including, for example, those supporting mobile payments, digital identity, self-service retail, and softPOS use-cases. 

White-Box Works has also achieved an EMVCo Software-Based Mobile Payment (SBMP) security evaluation certificate, following a successful EMVCo SBMP Evaluation conducted by global security lab, Riscure. 

“Statistical Analysis attacks are the bane of all white-box encryption protection solutions,” comments Allen Cronce, CEO of PACE Anti-Piracy, Inc. “We are very proud to be equipping the financial services industry with a solution capable of addressing these and other vulnerabilities. White-Box Works represents a significant step forward in the encryption protection space, and will give banks, PSPs, schemes, and other financial sector users greater confidence in the security of their sensitive data. We’re also delighted to accompany the launch with news of White-Box Works’ EMVCo SBMP evaluation certificate and are grateful to Riscure’s talented penetration testers. The entire Riscure team has been a pleasure to work with throughout the rigorous EMVCo evaluation process.”

“Riscure is proud to have assisted PACE Anti-Piracy in achieving an EMVCo SBMP evaluation certificate for White-Box Works,” adds Maarten Bron, Managing Director of Riscure North America. “This innovative technology provides a unique security capability for solution developers as it supports the creation of white-box instances for any algorithm, allowing for optimal flexibility and developer freedom when the protection of cryptographic keys is vital. This makes White-Box Works not only useful in payments, but also in other fields such as digital rights management, eHealth, IoT, automotive and more.” 

“It's also noteworthy that White-Box Works was evaluated as a stand-alone technology and did not require the additional protection of binary hardening and tamper-proofing technology to receive an EMVCo security evaluation certificate,” adds Allen Cronce. “I believe this is another industry first for White-Box Works. It’s an unmatched achievement we are immensely proud to highlight.”

White-Box Works is available now. For more information, please visit our White-Box Works webpage or contact PACE Anti-Piracy at [email protected]

iLok USB-C Announced

PRESS RELEASE – PACE ANTI-PIRACY, INC. - iLok USB-C Announced - Offering Professionals Even More Options To Keep Licenses Safe

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PACE Anti-Piracy, Inc. have today announced the USB-C version of the third generation iLok USB.

In addition to the iLok USB-A, PACE is now offering the iLok USB-C which uses the USB Type-C connector. Both iLok devices hold up to 1,500 authorizations—3x more than before—and deliver twice the transfer speed of the second generation iLok USB. Plus, it’s sleeker, smaller, and more secure, with a full metal jacket (made from durable aluminum) that won’t split or crack from normal use.

The iLok USB is fully backward compatible with previous versions – so all software developed for use with a 2nd generation iLok will continue to work with a 3rd generation iLok USB-A or USB-C. And with the addition of Zero Downtime (ZDT) protection, you will always have access to your licenses if your iLok USB is lost, damaged, or stolen.

Eden 5.0 - PACE Anti Piracy
iLok USB-A (back) & iLok USB-C (front)

Since its release over 20 years ago, the iLok USB hardware device has never been compromised.

The design of the 3rd generation iLok USB-A and USB-C are a huge step up from previous versions. The internal components are ingeniously small, packed into their metal case using methods that make duplication virtually impossible. And fewer components mean fewer points of failure once the device is being used in the field.

Many people asked for a USB-C version of the iLok, and here it is. More computers are entering the market with USB Type-C ports, and our new iLok USB-C allows users with USB-C ports to use our licensing key without the need of additional adapters. Along with our Fusion Anti-Tamper technology, the 3rd generation iLok USB-A and iLok USB-C provide a publisher with the most secure tools in the industry. Period.

Andrew KirkVice President of PACE Anti-Piracy, Inc.

Whether you’re purchasing your first iLok device or want to consolidate licenses from older keys, iLok USB makes it easy to take all of your software authorizations with you, wherever you go.

Announcing White-Box Works

PACE Anti-Piracy Announces White-Box Works, a Next-Generation White-Box Code Generator to Secure Cryptographic Keys and Data Against Discovery

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PACE Anti-Piracy, Inc. a leader in in-app protection technologies today announces the release of White-Box Works—a next-generation white-box code generator. This new in-app protection tool is a groundbreaking approach to white-box technology. Its unique industry-leading architecture adds new dimensions of security to protect cryptographic secrets against the most advanced discovery attacks.

Overview

White-Box Works is a white-box code generator, not simply a library of protected cryptographic operations. With White-Box Works software developers can generate or update an unlimited number of unique white-box implementations on-demand, keeping your team nimble and your bottom line safe from unexpected support bills. With White-box Works, updating your app no longer means updating your development budget.

White-Box Works includes many enhancements vs. previous generations of white-box products.

  1. Advanced proprietary architecture translates into resistance to the latest cryptographic attacks
  2. Algorithm agnostic
  3. Support for non-deterministic algorithms

The use of cryptography has grown significantly in recent years, and it’s increasingly common for applications to leverage cryptography. As encouraging as this might be, many developers have a false impression about what the use of cryptography in their application actually means in terms of security.

When an application encrypts data and sends it to a third party (that has a key to decrypt it), the data is protected in transit, but nothing is protecting the encrypt/decrypt operations themselves. If an attacker gains access to either device (a bank app running on a mobile device for example) they can easily extract an unencrypted copy of the key at the instance at which the key is decrypted.

Depending on how the application manages keys, this may allow the attacker to decrypt all past and future data sent by the application and possibly even all data sent by all users of the application. The result of such an attack is not simply a single compromised app, but potential intellectual property loss, DRM class breaks, back-end systems compromise, risk of costly GDPR and CCPA regulatory action, as well as damage to the App developer’s reputation and brand.

White-Box Works is an unmatched in-app protection tool to address this problem.

In cryptographic implementations transformed by White-Box Works, private keys, content keys and license store keys, trusted constants such as public keys, and proprietary algorithms are all executed within the boundaries of the White-Box and are never visible in a decrypted state in the static application or in runtime memory. White-Box Works was designed to defeat reverse engineering attacks and advanced statistical analysis attacks (like Differential Computation Analysis).

White-Box Works is a new, unique solution for adding white-box cryptography to applications. It provides unmatched protection for cryptographic keys vs. legacy solutions and is more flexible without compromising ease of use or performance.

Availability

White-Box Works is available today to software publishers as an option when updating their products.

Statement from PACE's CEO

Allen Cronce, CEO of PACE Anti-Piracy, Inc. states: “As app developers move more and more software logic to client side implementations, there is a pressing need to harden security related code against attacks. Financial services, identity, contact tracing, biotech and automotive apps are particularly vulnerable given their architectures.” With White-Box Works, PACE meets this need by providing comprehensive multi-layered security for keys and data.

Compatibility with Apple Notarization

PACE ANTI-PIRACY, INC. ANNOUNCES SUPPORT FOR APPLE NOTARIZATION REQUIRED IN MacOS CATALINA

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

October 14, 2019, San Jose, California.

PACE Anti-Piracy, Inc., a leading License Management and Application Protection platform, today announces compatibility with Apple Notarization.

Apple Notarization was initially announced at WWDC 2018 as an extension to the Developer ID program, where developers submit their apps to Apple for review. The program, as announced at WWDC 2018, was optional.

In April 2019, an update to Apple’s notarization support documentation  advised "Beginning in macOS 10.14.5, all new or updated kernel extensions and all software from developers new to distributing with Developer ID must be notarized in order to run." While the process changed to force new developers to notarize, the notice also points out everyone else developing macOS software will have to do so eventually, as "In a future version of macOS, notarization will be required by default for all software." 

In September 2019, Apple updated app publishers again. https://developer.apple.com/news/?id=09032019a “As a reminder, Mac software distributed outside the Mac App Store must be notarized by Apple in order to run on macOS Catalina.”

About Notarization

Gatekeeper Dialog

Notarization gives users more confidence that the Developer ID-signed software you distribute has been checked by Apple for malicious components. Notarization is not App Review. The Apple notary service is an automated system that scans your software for malicious content, checks for code-signing issues, and returns the results to you quickly. If there are no issues, the notary service generates a “ticket” for you to “staple” to your software; the notary service also publishes that ticket online where Gatekeeper can find it.

When the user first installs or runs your software, the presence of a ticket (either online or attached to the executable) tells Gatekeeper that Apple notarized the software. Gatekeeper then places descriptive information in the initial launch dialog to help the user make an informed choice about whether to launch the app.

Impact on PACE Anti-Piracy Eden Tools Users

Fast forward to today. With the October 1, 2019 release of Eden tools 5.1.0, PACE has added generalized support for Apple Notarization from within our tools. “To support our customers, we worked closely with Apple to get out ahead of Apple’s Notarization feature”, says Allen Cronce, CEO of PACE Anti-Piracy.

If your company hasn’t updated its licensing and application protection systems in the last few years, Apple is giving you yet another compelling reason to revamp those antiquated solutions. Now is a great time to adopt a new platform and work with a partner that’s committed to staying ahead of Apple ecosystem changes.

PACE has been providing licensing and application protection solutions to Apple application developers since 1985. We have the technology and experience to make transitioning to a modern, streamlined licensing and application protection solution painless and the cost of our technology is likely no more than your company is already investing in your current solution.
