PlayStation 3 Keys

It seems that geohot and the members of the group fail0verflow, who found (and in geohot's case, published) many of Sony's private signing keys for the PS3 console, are being sued by Sony. I could rant for a while about how everything they've done is perfectly legal, and how stupid the DMCA is (I probably will in the future), but actions speak louder than words, so here are the keys that geohot published before he took them down:

If you're going to sue geohot, you'll have to sue me too.

Some of geohot's tools are still available on github here. If they get taken down, I'll mirror them. Geohot's PS3 git repo is gone from github now, but I've mirrored it at git:// I've mirrored here. "PS3UPDAT.PUP" has an md5sum of b813ff51300c42d7c3b96992edfd6746.

The full talk on how the keys (except for metldr) were found is here here, and is worth a watch.
