Entropic completes CryptoFirewall integration

January 9, 2014

Entropic has completed the integration of the Cryptography Research CryptoFirewall security core technology into its advanced line of multimedia STB system-on-a-chip (SoC) products. By incorporating CRI’s technology into its SoCs, Entropic can help ensure its products protect against signal theft and content piracy.

Entropic’s ARM-based advanced STB SoC solutions are designed for hybrid broadcast/IP pay TV networks to provide security, best-in-class integration, features, and ecosystem support required by leading global pay TV operators. By natively embedding the CryptoFirewall core into its silicon hardware, Entropic adds a hardened security implementation with silicon-based key management, a private bus for key delivery, and extra logic for specific conditional access and DRM systems.

“Entropic is committed to enabling the secure distribution of premium programming via cable, satellite, broadband, IPTV, and OTT platforms,” said Matt Rhodes, senior vice president, Global Marketing at Entropic. “By working with the engineering team at Cryptography Research, we were able to design and integrate the CryptoFirewall security cores into our advanced security architecture for a higher level of content protection.”
