Irdeto meets new China CAS standard

January 10, 2011

Irdeto, the global expert in securing and delivering content and digital assets, has been awarded the latest Class A certification from the State Administration for Radio Film and Television (SARFT). Irdeto is the first international technology company to receive this certification, which mandates increased levels of specification for providers of conditional access (CA) systems in the areas of reliability, security and scalability.

The original CA certification standard was defined in June 2003 by SARFT, and has been updated recently to reflect technology advances, increases in subscriber numbers and the impact of digital television services. The new certification raises higher requirements from the perspectives of simulcrypt and smart card operating systems, common interface support plus security.
