Prof's computer local
prevents software theft

REHOVOT — Software
program piracy has become
the sourge of the computer
industry. However, Weiz-
mann Institute Prof. Adi
Shamir has developed a sys-
tern that, when widely
adopted, promises to pro-
vide program manufactur-
ers with a cheap, highly ef-
fective "lock," designed to
keep pirates and pilferers
Last year, software pro-
gram production in the U.S.
alone generated $1 billion
in sales. As personal home
and business computers be-
come increasingly popular,
a market is burgeoning for
software diskettes — corn-
puter programs inside
pieces of plastic shaped like
45 rpm records. But, as hap-
pened earlier with record
albums and videotapes,
program piracy based on in-
expensive blank diskettes
has become a popular pas-
time with computer hob-
In addition, program ren-
tals by independent outlets
contribute to financial los-
ses already estimated at
$500,000 annually. This not
only forces small companies
out of business, but results
in higher consumer costs.
Attempts to develop a
pirate-proof system have so
far failed.
Prof. Shamir, whose 1982
cracking of a supposedly
unbreakable Stanford com-
puter coding system earned
him the attention of the
world press, advocates mod-
ification of the disk drives
used by software companies
so that the drive will pro-
duce marginal strength
pulses in selected locations
in the program. These
pulses manifest themselves
by non-deterministic be-
havior i.e., sometimes they
read as a zero and some-
times as one.
While home computers
are designed to read weak
pulses, and thus use the
programs, they are not
equipped to introduce these
weak pulses into re-
recordings. Thus, any at-
tempt to copy the original
diskette will eliminate the
weak pulses and be detecta-
ble. Should this situation be
detected by the computer, it
will refuse to run.
The same technique may
also be employed to limit
the number of times that
rented diskettes can be

Adi Shamir

used. Each time a program
is run, the user's disk drive
will override a block of weak
pulses with standard pulses
of its own. Each overridden
block can be considered as a
"coupon" which has been
used up, and the number of
runs is limited by the origi-
nal number of the "coupons"
on the diskette.
The rental company can
thus charge users per run,
rather than on a flat rate
basis —the latter currently
employed system being
inherently unfair, both to
software companies and to
This system, likewise
applicable to software that
is distributed over the tele-
phone by commercial data-
base systems, will not only
protect software manufac-
turers from blatant theft,
but also will provide a boon
for those wishing for only
limited — and Consequently
inexpensive — use of a
given program.

"The beauty of the sys-
tern," says Prof. Shamir, "is
that it is cheap to imple-
ment and does not require
modifcation of home com-
puters already on the mar-
ket." Yeda Research and
Development Co. at the
Weizmann Institute of Sci-
ence has applied for patents
in regard to Prof. Shamir's
locking technique.

National Search

New York (JTA) — A
nation-wide search to find
outstanding examples of
service to the elderly by
synagogues and churches
has been launched by the

dham University.
