WHAT THINGS DO YOU NEED TO PROTECT IF NOT DEPLOYING MULTI-DRM SERVICE?
Since content distribution right undertaking is massive in itself, service providers should also secure their revenue and service.
Whether deploying a video Multi-DRM solution or not securing your service from piracy requires robust protection for:
SECURING THE VIDEO PLAYBACK DEVICES
While Implementing a multiplatform service, it is vital to detect and analyse the security architecture for each device. As it helps you understand the 360-degree view of potential risks, it professes to your video Multi-DRM solution and content.
For example, Jailbreak and root detection help determine whether the device is trustful to playback premium content.
SECURING THE DRM SYSTEM
Some platforms implement security controls to ensure the integrity of the DRM system itself, while most do not. Thus, additional security controls are required to develop and deployed to secure the DRM system. In addition, a Major section of open platforms like PCs, some mobiles, and jailbroken/rooted devices do not provide any security for the DRM system or the video application.
The video application is the weakest link in the end-to-end video Multi-DRM solution. If the application is not secured correctly, it will give the hacker license to modify control functionality like concurrency, user management, and authorization, rendering even the most robust DRM technology irrelevant.
SECURING THE END-TO-END SYSTEM
A video service to guard content and service distribution while obtaining studio approval to deliver premium content requires layers of protection above core DRM.
Required technologies include:
Device identification and authentication.
CDN access control.
Other controls that a DRM system doesn't provide.
