    • How to remove DRM protection from EPUB ebooksBarnes & Noble uses its own DRM scheme for some EPUB books. Its a variant of theAdobe ADEPT scheme, and all the Adobe SDK users will get access to it eventually.The problem is that many consumers can’t read B&N books on their ebook readers.Tips: • Nook DRM Removal can helps you remove DRM from Nook ePUB with 1-click • How Transfer Protected ePUB to supported devices with Adobe Digital Editions • How to remove DRM from Adobe epub • Convert ePUB to azw/prc/mobi/tpz for reading on Kindle • Best ePUB Builder Freeware, help you creat your epub booksCircumventing Barnes & Noble DRM for EPUB using Python ScriptsIn a move sure to leave consumers scratching their heads (especially the onesalready wondering why they bought a Nook), Barnes & Noble has decided to implementtheir own DRM scheme for EPUB books. They partnered with Adobe to do it (it’s avariant of their ADEPT scheme), and all the Adobe SDK users will get access to iteventually. But for now much hilarity ensues as consumers buy books they can’tread on their devices.The basic idea behind the B&N EPUB scheme is the same as that used by the ill-fatedeReader format B&N acquired – book-step 1: generate an encryption key from the book-purchaser’s name + credit card;step 2: hope that they don’t like giving that information out to strangers. Theylike to call this a form of “social DRM,” although I believe a more appropriateterm is “silly.”It would be very bad form for an application to keep user CC#s just sitting aroundon disk, so the Windows version of the Barnes & Noble Desktop Reader application(BDReader just holds on to the generated key and not the source info. A wise BDReader) BDReaderdecision, for which I congratulate them. It then stores this key in plain text ina sqlite3 database. An... interesting... decision, for which I thank them. Update Update:and then it turned out the key-generation algorithm was pretty easy too...So now three scripts:A Windows-only key-retrieval script: ignoblekey (version 2) Copyright: http://www.epubor.com | Epubor
    • An any-platform key-generation script: ignoblekeygen (version 1)And an any-platform book-decryption script: ignobleepub (version 1)You need the decryption script and one of either the key-retrieval or key-generationscripts. They produce the same output, and the key-generator works on any platform,but I released the Windows key-retrieval script first and will leave it up forWindows users who’d rather not give their credit card number to random programsthey download off the Internet (despite being a source-visible script and all).For good only, please.Quote:The basic idea behind the B&N EPUB scheme is the same as that used by the ill-fated eReaderformat B&N acquired:step 1: generate an encryption key from the book-purchasers name + credit card #step 2: hope that they dont like giving that information out to strangers.

    • You need the decryption script and one of either the key-retrieval or key-generationscripts. They produce the same output. The key-generator works on any platform.The Windows key-retrieval script can get access to your credit card (despite beingan open-source script).If you get the following error after running ignoblekey.pyw"Error: Problem decoding key; unexpected DB format? Error: format?"you can either find and delete your ClientAPI_v012.db file then re-authorizeBDReader with your account information,or just use the key-derivation script (ignoblekeygen).Both ignoblekey and ignoblekeygen will produce the same output when they workcorrectly.Usefull article: How to remove drm from epub on Adobe Digital EditionsKeywords: Remove Drm from ePub,,Remove eBooks Drm,ePub Drm RemoveSource: http://www.epubor.com/how-to-remove-drm-protection-from-epub-ebooks.html Copyright: http://www.epubor.com | Epubor
