How do you know its not fixed?
Also if its an open system, surely that means reverse engineering it will not require access to hardware?
Also it says rolling keys, but doesn't say how often it will roll; it could be seconds it could be hours.
I dont know why they would call it BISS, its more like PowerVU if anything.
As I understand it BISS2 Modes 1,2 and 3(BISS-E) are similar to BISS1, except using IPTV software scrambling algorithms and a AES yes instead of DES. I think i am correct in thinking that hardly no-one uses BISS-E at the moment anyway. BISS-CA is a new option with the rolling keys.
Not sure why they would use an IPTV scrambling algorithm and not develop one specifically for satellite.
