PACE Anti-Piracy, Inc. is proud to announce that Vienna Symphonic Library is now offering iLok USB and iLok Cloud compatible licenses for their entire product line. In an announcement earlier today, VSL's press release stated "We’re excited to enter a new era of easy installation procedures, license management, and using our products with or without a physical USB key!"
Along with new iLok compatible licenses, VSL has created an application called Vienna Assistant, to aid in the download and installation process. As VSL states "we’ve streamlined the entire process from purchasing to playing so you can focus on what really matters, your music!" To celebrate the switch, VSL is offering store-wide discounts on all of their products!
Derek Heimlich, Director of Sales, Pro Audio, at PACE Anti-Piracy stated "We are proud to be working with Vienna Symphonic Library. They are known throughout the industry for their excellent products, and we are happy to help protect their products while enabling their customers to fulfill their artistic endeavors."
For videos, instructions, and more details on VSL's switch to iLok, read their full article here.
VSL is one of the leading developers of sample libraries and music production software for classical orchestral music. The Vienna Symphonic Library provides digital samples of solo voices and instruments as well as orchestral ensembles. The VSL software acts as an interface for the music composer to play the real instruments on a MIDI keyboard. Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, Lenny Kravitz, Beyoncé, and Justin Timberlake are all VSL users.
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.

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.”
