Content security specialist Verimatrix has licensed Cryptography Research’s CryptoFirewall security core technology to help build solutions to protect video revenue streams.
The CryptoFirewall is a self-contained ASIC security core that provides a secure hardware foundation for signal security applications. The core is designed to protect cryptographic keys and computations within a chip even if surrounding components are compromised. The CryptoFirewall core is integrated directly into leading video decoding system-on-chips, providing a robust and cost-effective solution that is complementary with conditional access solutions.
Cryptography Research, a division of Rambus Inc, develops and licenses innovative technologies in areas including tamper resistance, content protection, network security, and financial services.
“Content piracy and theft of service are major commercial concerns for our system operator customers, as well as the community of content owners. We are continually evolving our layered approach to embedded security to stay ahead of potential attacks,” said Tom Munro, CEO at Verimatrix. “Cryptography Research’s technologies have an excellent reputation for securing content, and the CryptoFirewall core complements and reinforces Verimatrix’s full range of revenue security solutions.”
Verimatrix will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 4.B54
