1.-- Chameleon - the newcs P2P ------- --- -- - - -
Here we will _try_ to make a little introduction on how the P2P network works.
You have to start by creating your own self-signed Certificate, this can be done with this command on a machine that has openssl installed:
openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out newcs.pem -keyout newcs.pem
or you can create a certificate on a online site, there is some that creates self-signed certificates.
The connection from newcs<->newcs is encrypted with SSL.
After creating the certificate, place it somewhere and make sure the path in the <certificate> tag in the global section reflects that.
Go through the <chameleon> section, and set your port, create users if you need incomming connections, peers if you need outgoing connections.
If you want incomming connections, the tcp-port specified needs to be open in your router (NAT or similar).
When the server is started, it will generate a random 2byte hex serverID - this will be the ID of your server for this session, the other servers
in the network will locate you based on this ID _only_. Only your peers know your details, _noone_ else on the network know your details -to 3rd parties
the network is completely anonymous.
Clients have to connect to Chameleon through the Feynman server in NewCS, through here the client will send ECM to Chameleon. Chameleon will then
broadcast a ECM to all serverID's in the network that has this CAID/Provider, all that can, answer with a valid dcw. The 3 fastest replies will
be remembered, and Chameleon will continue now to send _only_ to the fastest replier. Chameleon will try to keep a timeing to the next fastest server
so it can switch when another one is faster.
For the moment, Mgcamd 1.2x can also get the chameleon cards through newcamd protocol IF the user it use to login has <cardlevel> set to 1.
If a client send more then 10 requests for a sid, and dont get a valid dcw - this client is blocked on this sid for another 100 requests to prevent
2.-- Feynman Protocol ------- --- -- - - -
Feynman is a protocol written by us, it can handle multiple cards over one port, EMM, ECM - handle SIDS on both sides. It provides simple functions, so
client and server developers can think about other important stuff :)
We hope that this will be the new "standard" in the sat hobby - like newcamd has been in the past few years :)
Newcamd has been a great protocol, but it has its limitations - and we hope to phase out newcamd (and radegast) in the next major version of NewCS.
Would be nice if someone could make a sourceforge project, or some other opensource project site.
PLEASE, we give this as opensource, please keep it that way :)
Feedback is appriciated, hope someone will take this as a project to improve and nurse :)

4.-- Runtime Arguments ------- --- -- - - -
NewCS can be run with some arguments when you start it, here are some of them explained:
-c configfile, here you can specify the path to a configfile.
-h help, will show something similar to this.
-v version, this will show when the binary is compiled and which version it is.
-nd this is will prevent NewCS from forking.
/var/newcs -c /etc/newcs-usb.xml (you give full path to configfile)
5.-- Configfile ------- --- -- - - -
Remember to always close the tags, there is a beginner tag "<tag>" and a end tag "</tag>", if the tag start
with a "<!-- " and ends with a " -->" it is a comment. More info about xml you will find on google..
Look in the configfile for explanations on what the different sections are.
Configfile isnt case-sensitive and shouldnt care about dos/unix crlf differences.
6.-- TCP-Commands ------- --- -- - - -
Telnet to the tcp-port (default is 1001) and write the commands hit enter to execute it:
PS! In windows the standard telnet client doesnt work, try using f.ex Putty as a client instead (raw mode).

7.-- FAQ ------- --- -- - - -
Q: Who are you, and why are you doing this?
A: we are a group that tries to have some fun, during our spare time we have satellite-studying as
a hobby - and since newcamd project has its own strange politics, gbox project isnt public and
the rest of the available isnt quite like we wanted to have it - we wrote our own :o)
Q: Why NewCS as project name?
A: Since newcamd already "stole" the cardserver name - we found out to differ it from newcamd project's
cardserver, we made another name for it.. NewCS - "New CardServer"
If you find out another nice name for it, just let us know, we rather code a little as to think about names :o)
Q: Which protocols are supported, and why that new one?
A: Both radegast and newcamd protocol are 100% supported, this to be compatible with any of the current
clients out there.. eg. mgcamd, evocamd, newcamd and so on.. The reason we made a new protocol is
because we wanted something of our own - this we can extend and do whatever we want with, the others
is in the hands of their respective authors.. and can be changed without us kinda "approving" it..
Q: So, which cards are supported?
A: well.. good question :) (since i asked it myself it must be faboulous :p)
At this moment the following cards are supported:
*- Conax (ecm&emm) *- Seca (ecm&emm)
*- Irdeto (ecm&emm) *- Cryptoworks (ecm&emm&ecm w/mosc & camcrypt(arena))
*- Betacrypt (ecm&emm) *- Viaccess (ecm&emm)
*- Dreamcrypt (ecm&emm) *- Videoguard (ecm&emm)
*- D2mac (ecm&emm) *- Nagravision 2&3(ecm&emm)
*- DGCrypt (ecm&emm)
(all needs to be tested ofc, we dont have the opportunity to do extensive tests).
Q: Where can i find the sourcecode for NewCS?
A: The sourcecode wont be released as we have done alot of work to design it, and really not much help around
.. personally i can deeply recommend starting on your own project, you'll learn much - i promise :o)
Q: Help? It DOESNT work - where can i reach you?
A: Well.. we hope that when NewCS gets public, there will be a few experts around on the different
forums and irc channels all around the globe.. you cant reach us, but if you post your questions,
or if you got errorlog, etc. - on a english-speaking or german-speaking forum, we will probably see it :o)
Q: I Want to donate money to your project, where do i send them?
A: We do this just for fun, and have no commercial interest what-so-ever, we suggest that you send
the money to a help-organization like f.ex the red-cross, or something similar :)
Q: Why cant newcamd connect to my card?
A: Well, newcamd guys have some strange politics.. some cards cant be used in newcamd with the standard
protocol.. for some reasons newcamd can only use that with betad and some bloody *nix socket..
To watch these cards, you have to use the NewCS compliant camds (evocamd or mgcamd) - or maybe some others that havent got limitation.
Q: Why cant gbox connect to my card?
A: Gbox isnt a public project, and "only a few" ppl can get updated versions.. and so on (we all know its BS though).
anyway.. the protocol used in gbox are unknown at this moment, they change it everytime someone figures it out,
so we wont support it unless gbox should find out that they would like to use NewCS.. then they can make support :)
(cs2gbox could work, but who knows or cares :P)
Q: Is the xml protocol available?
A: Yes! :) will be documented here ASAP!
Q: Whats the "node" for Infinity-USB programmer?
A: The USB-port is "only" used to set the programmer to phoenix-mode, all communication with reader goes through serial, so to get it to work
you have to specify the serialport it is connected to as "node".
Q: Why doesnt my card work with NewCS in windows when it works with NewCS on linux?
A: There can be many reasons, the code for handling communication with the card is 100% different, timeing can be very different too, also
some devices seems to have better drivers in linux then in windows, and vice versa.
Q: How can I generate a SSL certificate for use with NewCS ?
A: You have atleast two options:
- With OpenSSL: openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out newcs.pem -keyout newcs.pem
- With a online generator: http://....

v.1.3 -Stable Release
Okay, first of all we want to apologise for the looong wait.. we have been working hard though, honest! :)
This is just a minor release though, was time for some bugfixes - and so you know that we're still alive!
Changes from previous release are too many to mention here (tbh. we have lost control over the changelog :p)
There have been alot of fixes, hopefully its bit more stable now then before..
Can also mention that we have added DGcrypt (wherever thats used..)
Also we have compiled support for the Kathrein box, even though it might not be quite useful (seems awfully buggy) :)
The big changes and features are planned for the next major release (v1.5 series)
v.1.20 -Release Candidate 13:
Fixed timeings again.. think it should be faster now.
Added binary for the Axis Etrax 100LX.
Added Kaffeine CS client id.
Modified sending PIN-code for Conax Cards, also now use <pincode> tag to specify your code.
Added putting EMM in queue (note. if priority == fifo, emm is processed as fifo too, else they processed only if there is no ecm in queue)
Will now keep ECM in queue even if card needs to reinit, maybe u still get answer within timout-period.
Fixed misc bugs in NDS code, especially regarding GA-EMM's that made newcs reinit card.
Fixed cosmetic bug, now showing 6 numbers in provider.
Added new frequency for phoenix - 1,53mhz.
Fixed cosmetics, dont flood log when card reinit.

Fixed misc bugs in the ECM/EMM-queue.
Added Entitlement adjustment on caid 092F.
Added possiblity to force newcs to bind only to one specific ip (only on linux versions).
Set loglevel to 0 if tcp-password is set.
Fixed default port on newcamd, if no port is set in device - it will now be 15000+readernumber (instead of 15050 for all readers).

Hopefully fixed bug in tcp-console where data was sendt faster then windows could handle.
More and better error-handling.

Lots of bugfixes..
v.1.04 -Public Beta:
Fixed Viaccess on Dbox (tested on 6Mhz multicam)
Added option to allow users to only access specified card. (look for changes in configs)
Added option to specify port for each card. (look for changes in configs)
Fixed segfault when some options(thats not needed on these) was missing for sci/dragon.

New tcp-command: uptime.
Newcamd server close connection if user is unknown.
Fixed rare login problems.

Fixed Viaccess-init in dbox.
Made carddetect faster.
Removed SID checking on irdeto/beta.
Disable carddetect on dbox, it doesnt work.. none of us in the dev-team has access to one, so we
program in blind. If anyone got info on how to do carddetect on Dbox, please point us in the right
direction by posting it on boards or something like that.
v.1.02 -Public Beta:
Fixed Skyitaly ATR (seems they have two different ones, one has same starting bytes as nagra :O)
Fixed Digital ALB unknown nano.
Added missing Dbox-type in commented config.
NB!! We have recieved info that Newcamd Cardspider has additional checks for NDS cards, it seems that
the cards are added to the spider as normal, but the cw's wont reach the other peers (it works locally)..
In general newcamd dont support 1 single cw, so to have it 100% stable use mgcamd or evocamd.
v.1.01 -Public Beta:
Documentation should be nearly done.
9.-- Troubleshooting ------- --- -- - - -
10.-- Special Notes ------- --- -- - - -
What can i say, have no idea how to explain this so _everyone_ can understand what the hell it is.. but
lets have another go.. as with default config, lets assume there is dynamic cache configured:
Imagine an ECM comes to the server, this NewCS have never seen before, it sends it to the card, the card
responds with the decrypted control words, the dynamic cache know that this is a good response, and is valid
for a certain period of time. So it puts it into a storage which is compared with every new ECM sendt to NewCS.
Now lets imagine there is another client that sends the exactly same ECM within a few seconds, then NewCS compare
this new ECM to the cache, and finds that the card already have decrypted this ECM, so it just sends the decrypted
control words to the client, without sending the ECM to the card.
Since the ECM is only valid for a certain period of time, there isnt need to store them for a longer period (it is
not very likely that the provider sends the same ECM twice -without there beeing a big bug in their software).
Regarding EMM cache, it checks the cache if EMM has been sendt to the card before, if it hasnt, then its sendt,
else its ignored.
If you enable this, NewCS will learn which channels your cards can decode, and deny the others,
this will hopefully lower the load on your card, giving it a longer life and faster decryption.
The Configfile options will override the auto-sid feature, so think through your setup.
A valid EMM will reset the denied auto-sids.
There has been ALOT of suspicions etc. around the fact that our userid's start at number 2.
First of all, if we wanted to make a backdoor, you really think we would make it that obvious?
The REAL reason for userid's starting at 2 is that newcamd always assumes that userid 1 has AU-rights,
we dont like this policy, so ALL newcs-users has to have <au>on</au> to get AU-rights.
Simple as that :)
The two custom-bytes in login is used for identifying the client, the following are assigned by us:
#define CL_VDRSC 0x5644 - VDR-SC
#define CL_LCE 0x4C43 - LinCardEMU

There are 3 types supported:
low-id users' ECM gets through first,that mean first user in config will have the highest priority.
All users have equal chance of getting theire ECM through, its called "Round Robin"-algoritm.
First in, First out - as the name says, the one who sendt first, gets answer first.
Well, this is some tricky stuff..
There seems to be adapters that emulate almost 100% and works with all CAS, we have seen them in both pl2303 adapters and ftdi adapters.
And then we have the adapters that work on conax, seca, viaccess, cryptoworks, dreamcrypt, irdeto - and if your are lucky, videoguard -
or maybe only a few of them.. seems some adapters are really really slow, or just dont read/write all bytes :(
Infinity USB burner:
There seems to be some slight problems if the usb isnt put in before the machine is booted, you can always check manually if its detected,
just do: cat /proc/bus/usb/devices | grep "wbe" - if you get anything then all probably should go very well :)
The timing on this device seems to be a little strange - works on some CAS and not on others, not much to do about it..

Much precious time has been spent on the project, remember its all about fun, not about money..
We are against all commercial cardsharing, and will do as much as we can to prevent it - without
limiting the "normal" user..
