INSIDE Secure, a specialist in semiconductor and software solutions for securing transactions, content and digital identity, has announced that Korea-based Telechips is integrating a host of INSIDE security solutions into its new family of set-top box processor chips. Telechips will add INSIDE DRM Fusion Agent solutions for HDCP and DTCP-IP and the SafeZone secure platform into its new TCC89XX multimedia application processors to help ensure secure boot up and end-to-end content protection.
“The integration of INSIDE secure-boot and HDCP/DTCP-IP protection solutions eliminates the need for add-on security software and greatly enhances the many built-in features and benefits of our newest family of set-top box processors, and enables Telechips to provide trustworthy security solutions for carriers,” said Jangkyu Lee, vice president of marketing and sales at Telechips. “INSIDE was able to step up quickly and provide exactly what we needed to support in-home digital content protection for high-value and premium content through HDCP and DTCP-IP technologies.”
The INSIDE HDCP and DTCP-IP solutions allow consumers to share high-definition and high-value content among multiple devices by protecting delivery of premium content between transmitter devices (consumer tablets, smartphones, game consoles, PCs, set-top boxes) and receiver devices (TVs, projectors, monitors). Compatible with the latest HDCP2.2 and DTCP-IP v 1.7 specifications, they allow semiconductor and appliance vendors to implement a complete content protection solution into silicon and consumer devices, where it protects all of the encryption keys and secure computations. The security modules of the HDCP and DTCP-IP protocols are available for integration on a Trusted Execution Environment-based platform or as a dedicated, highly secure and optimised hardware module.
“The need for content security assurance is growing in lock step with the global expansion of content delivery services, and forward-thinking chip makers like Telechips are building security into their silicon instead of treating it as an afterthought,” said Dr. Simon Blake-Wilson, executive vice president, ESS, at INSIDE Secure. “This design win underscores our ability to deliver a bundled security solution, and we appreciate the trust placed in us by Telechips and a growing number of other semiconductor providers integrating our mobile and network security.”
The INSIDE DRM Fusion Agent supports HDCP, Microsoft PlayReady, Windows Media DRM, Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) and DECE UltraViolet standards. The DRM Fusion Agent is available as a downloadable application for both Android and Apple iOS-based smartphones and tablets. As an embedded solution, it is available on Android and many other embedded platforms for mobile phones, set-top boxes and other devices. The DRM Fusion Agent also supports in-home digital content protection through HDCP and DTCP-IP solutions. With DRM Fusion Agent, content is protected from content owners and distributors all the way to rendering devices such as TVs, monitors and projectors.
INSIDE also offers an end-to-end media security solution through its DRM Fusion Server for carriers and network service providers. The INSIDE DRM Fusion Server handles the entire DRM process from content protection, rights creation and rights and condition management to license generation and delivery.
