AMSTERDAM at IBC 2019 (Hall 5, Booth 5.A55) — September 12, 2019 — Intertrust, the pioneer in Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology, today announced that Fransat and HD+, France and Germany’s leading free TV operators, have selected Intertrust’s ExpressPlay XCA™ to protect and manage video streams over major broadcast and IPTV networks. The world’s first system that converges conditional access (CA) and DRM content protection for pay TV network operators and broadcasters, ExpressPlay XCA offers a unified content-security platform for broadcast, IPTV and broadband over-the-top (OTT) TV. Fransat and HD+ join UK’s Freesat in adopting ExpressPlay XCA, bringing Intertrust’s unique technology to three major European TV markets.

Built on the open-standard Marlin DRM engine, ExpressPlay XCA lets TV operators deliver content to set-top box (STB) or smart TV via DVB (digital video broadcasting) channels. Marlin DRM was created by a consortium led by Intertrust, Panasonic, Philips, Samsung and Sony. Fransat and HD+ have now joined other operators in the Free TV Alliance, a collaboration between the four major European free digital satellite television broadcasters to promote free satellite TV and the technology used in its broadcasts, in adopting XCA’s revolutionary capabilities.

Additionally, HiSense and TCL announced that they will provide smart TVs with XCA software for select 2020 models. Intertrust also announced that set-top box leader CommScope will provide hardware with embedded XCA security to television operators. These device leaders join Vestel and other TV majors which were announced earlier this year at CES in Las Vegas.

“Our partnerships with Fransat and HD+, and device makers around the globe, signal a changing convergence trend in the world of content protection and management as consumers expect a common experience between their devices, and broadcasters and operators seek to leverage the economic efficiencies that internet-based technologies provide,” said Talal G. Shamoon, CEO at Intertrust Technologies.

Intertrust designed XCA’s back-end services to operate in two modes, one using full CA services from Intertrust, and another that allows integration with third-party CA infrastructure. The former provides a full end-to-end solution, while the latter allows operator choice on services and devices.

Shamoon continued, “ExpressPlay XCA is the perfect security engine to provide this seamless experience and economic efficiency, delivering TV-everywhere services by bringing the security robustness, device availability and deployment flexibility of DRM to the conditional access world while meeting the broadcast industry’s traditional requirements for security and service.”

‘One-way’ broadcasters are increasingly deploying OTT services amid immense competitive pressure and declining subscriber rates for their traditional services. This has required that they manage two content protection solutions — CAS, which is used in legacy satellite and cable TV, and DRM which serves the OTT market — to cover digital broadcast as well as web-based streaming services. Managing both is expensive and inefficient, and becoming more uneconomical as DRM’s agility has expanded on-premise and in the cloud. ExpressPlay XCA solves these challenges with a disruptive, unified content‑protection model.

 

Un-Conditional Access Ecosystem

Intertrust has developed a vibrant ecosystem around ExpressPlay XCA with the FreeTV Alliance which includes Fransat, HD+, Freesat, and Italy’s Tivu. In addition, a vast array of SoC (system on a chip) makers including Broadcom, MediaTek, RealTek, NovaTek, AmLogic, Alitech, and Montage now support ExpressPlay XCA, allowing broadcasters and TV operators to leverage a multitude of STB and smart TV manufacturers which have pre-integrated ExpressPlay-enabled chipsets into their products and components.

It also supports DVB broadcast-only devices, broadband and DVB-IP hybrid devices, bridging the CAS and DRM worlds with a single client security stack for broadcast and broadband services. Intertrust’s DRM solution provides a secure content-delivery framework for ExpressPlay XCA that leverages SoC-implemented security features such as trusted-execution environments (TEE) and secure video paths (SVP) for UHD content, and also supports forensic watermarking to offer the highest level of content protection for premium content distribution.

ExpressPlay XCA requires no dedicated hardware in devices or external modules such as smart cards and conditional access modules (CAM). With support for linear TV scenarios, IPTV platforms, cloud, on-premise and OTT services, it is an economical content protection solution that protects current services while offering the flexibility to quickly address the challenges of the cord‑cutting future.

Intertrust also revealed today, at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, that ExpressPlay XCA’s sister product, ExpressPlay DRM, has achieved a global milestone as it now protects the over-the-top TV content services for one-quarter of the world’s population.

Media and analysts can learn more about ExpressPlay XCA at IBC 2019 in Amsterdam which takes place at the RAI convention venue. Interested parties are invited to the Intertrust booth in Hall 5 (Booth 5.A55), or they can contact intertrust@sparkpr.com to arrange an online or in-person briefing and demo.

whiteCryption Secure Key Box (SKB) Adds TLS Support for End-to-End Data Security across Networks


Sunnyvale, California — August 1st, 2019, whiteCryption, app shielding pioneer and Intertrust subsidiary today announced that whiteCryption® Secure Key Box™ (SKB) for Transport Layer Security (TLS) is available for app developers. SKB for TLS is a special implementation of a TLS library that uses white-box cryptography to ensure that the keys used to establish both the connection and session keys to secure the transmission are always protected.

Easy-to-use, white-box cryptography solution delivers TLS networking with secure key management for protection of connections and transmissions, to be demonstrated at Black Hat, Booth 566.

 

Sunnyvale, California — August 1st, 2019, whiteCryption®, app shielding pioneer and Intertrust subsidiary today announced that whiteCryption® Secure Key Box™ (SKB) for Transport Layer Security (TLS) is available for app developers. SKB for TLS is a special implementation of a TLS library that uses white-box cryptography to ensure that the keys used to establish both the connection and session keys to secure the transmission are always protected.

TLS is the industry standard networking protocol used in web browsers, cloud software, and other applications that require data to be securely exchanged over a network. TLS ensures a secure connection between the client and the server. However, unless the cryptographic keys are kept secure at all times, data integrity and security are at risk from eavesdropping and message manipulation. If an attacker gains access to the keys used to secure either end of the TLS connection, they can use the key to decrypt the communication, read the data, alter it in transit, or masquerade as a legitimate device. TLS can also provide mutual authentication for both the client and the server. However, mutual authentication can only be trusted if the key on each end of the communication is protected.

“The whiteCryption SKB-TLS white box cryptographic library is superior to other TLS stacks in the market,” said Bill Horne, General Manager of Intertrust Secure Systems. “In addition to being more secure, it is very easy to use. We ensure that keys are persistently secured, and never appear in the clear, even when data is being used, and is in the device memory. This prevents hackers from using open-source tools and techniques to search through the memory looking for keys.”

When used in tandem with protected cryptographic keys, TLS’ cryptographic operations ensure that the data remains safe during transmission from end-to-end. Intertrust delivers end-to-end security with whiteCryption® Secure Key Box  (SKB) for TLS.

Demonstrations of this solution available at Black Hat on August 7 and 8 at Booth 566.

Intertrust and Vewd Partner to Introduce Next Generation Content Protection for HbbTV


Sunnyvale, CA and Oslo, Norway June 6, 2019 – Intertrust, the pioneer in Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology and Vewd, the world’s largest smart TV OTT software provider, today announced pre-integration of XCA in Vewd Core to reduce cost and accelerate time-to-market for operator HbbTV deployments.

First HbbTV Integration of XCA Disruptive Card-less Conditional Access System, Demonstrated at the 16° European Digital Forum Event, Lucca, Italy

 

Sunnyvale, CA and Oslo, Norway June 6, 2019Intertrust, the pioneer in Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology and Vewd, the world’s largest smart TV OTT software provider, today announced pre-integration of XCA in Vewd Core to reduce cost and accelerate time-to-market for operator HbbTV deployments.

Using Intertrust’s standards-based ExpressPlay XCA™ and Vewd Core, the world’s most-chosen independent HTML5 SDK for smart TVs, device manufacturers can offer a more complete software stack of content protection and HbbTV support. Additionally, the new system enables cost savings for operators by limiting dependency on expensive CA modules and onerous business terms.

As consumers demand a seamless experience between broadcast and broadband TV, the industry has rallied behind standards like Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV (HbbTV). A large screen TV experience is well-suited for high value content like early release movies, blockbuster TV shows, and live sports events and the need for high reliability and high scalability content protection has never been greater. Hybrid TV networks allow the targeting of both content and ads to large screen TV viewers, while gaining reliability and scale to benefit point-to-multi-point broadcast networks.

Based on the Marlin DRM open standard, Intertrust ExpressPlay XCA brings world-class conditional access content protection technology to power broadcast or hybrid TV services. The ExpressPlay platform is the gold standard for modern content protection, providing all DRM formats (Marlin, PlayReady, Widevine, Fairplay, Access) and XCA. XCA’s cloud architecture supports both one-way and two-way networks, offering converged OTT and broadcast support. The cloud-based XCA service works in concert with ExpressPlay DRM™ to provide complete coverage of DRM technologies for the OTT part of hybrid services, which scales content services across the widest range of devices. Unlike other conditional access technologies, XCA is cheaper and more robust, and is available on Smart TVs and set top boxes.

“Consumers expect to push a button on a remote control and see a show,” said Guido Cugi, Head of Media Technology Solutions, Intertrust. “At the same time, content creators expect their rights to be protected regardless of format. We designed ExpressPlay XCA to support a seamless user experience, protect creators’ rights and provide a highly cost-effective and easy-to-deploy solution for operators that is sensitive to the hybrid world.”

To enable the new Intertrust XCA integration, Vewd optimized Vewd Core and its Hybrid TV and Media Player modules. Vewd’s Hybrid TV solution is the world’s most-trusted HbbTV technology, designed to support operators’ and broadcasters’ advanced HbbTV use cases, including personalization and content substitution.

“HbbTV has improved how hundreds of millions of people enjoy TV,” said Frode Hernes, SVP of Product Management, Vewd, and HbbTV Association board member. “Because XCA delivers scale with a card-less solution, operators naturally want it available in the HbbTV stack. With Intertrust, we’re first to market with XCA in HbbTV. This is the future of content protection, delivered today.”

Initially focused on HbbTV technology, the solution will soon extend to other use cases, including ATSC 3.0.

To watch the Vewd – ExpressPlay XCA demo, please visit us at the 16° European Digital Forum Event in Lucca, June 6-7.

Sunnyvale, Calif. Apr 03, 2019 – Intertrust, a pioneer in Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology, announced today that its ExpressPlay uDRM™ service now includes API integration with AWS Elemental services via the Secure Packager and Encoder Key Exchange (SPEKE) API. SPEKE defines the standard for authentication and communication between encryptors and digital rights management (DRM) key servers. Encryptors include video encoders, transcoders, and origin servers.

Sunnyvale, Calif. Apr 03, 2019Intertrust, a pioneer in Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology, announced today that its ExpressPlay uDRM™ service now includes API integration with AWS Elemental services via the Secure Packager and Encoder Key Exchange (SPEKE) API. SPEKE defines the standard for authentication and communication between encryptors and digital rights management (DRM) key servers. Encryptors include video encoders, transcoders, and origin servers.

As UHD formats and “large screen” OTT-friendly devices become commonplace, consumers are streaming premium content such as live sports and early release window movie and TV titles. With the need to secure these media assets against ever-present piracy threats, powerful content protection technologies are being rolled out. These include multi-DRM services with multiple integration points that create an industry interoperability challenge, increased project risk, and delayed ollouts.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) developed the SPEKE API to simplify and standardize the DRM service-to-packager integration and to allow a rich set of content protection technologies such as key rotation. SPEKE, which is based on open industry standards, was implemented on the Intertrust ExpressPlay uDRM service to allow smooth interoperability with video processing and packaging offerings from AWS Elemental – the AWS Elemental MediaPackage and AWS Elemental MediaConvert cloud services, and the AWS Elemental Delta and AWS Elemental Live appliance products. This SPEKE implementation is operational in early deployments worldwide.

ExpressPlay uDRM is a proven cloud-based DRM service offering support for the leading DRM technologies, including the standards-based Marlin DRM, Adobe Primetime, Google Widevine, Apple FairPlay, and Microsoft PlayReady. The ExpressPlay uDRM cross-platform SDK enables application developers, and device and SoC manufacturers to quickly and cost effectively support the open standard Marlin DRM.

“AWS Elemental MediaPackage and AWS Elemental Delta reliably prepare and protect video for delivery over the Internet, to a wide set of video playback devices,” said Nabil Kanaan, Director, Product Marketing, Media at Intertrust Technologies. “ExpressPlay uDRM, with its wide array of DRM technologies and corresponding range of secure playback devices, has rolled out tighter API integration with an industry leader in packaging, encryption, and delivery, therefore greatly assisting our joint customers to confidently launch OTT secure services.”

Consumer Electronics Show, Las Vegas, NV – January 10, 2019 – Evio Polska today announced the availability of their conditional access system, eCAS™, based on Intertrust Technologies Corporation ExpressPlay XCA™, the world’s first open standard based video Conditional Access platform. XCA is available on set top boxes and SmartTVs and is driving the convergence between Broadcast and Broadband Internet television. Operators using XCA can leverage an ecosystem of components and services from SoC makers, Smart TV manufacturers and head-end providers, all of whom have rallied around a standards-based video security technology.

Evio’s is the world’s first third party broadcast TV platform with fully integrated client and headend which is fully compatible with XCA. Currently, Evio provides complete solutions using Marlin DRM-based technologies from Intertrust. Through Evio, operators can rely on a growing base of Smart TVs and set top boxes, and are free from many of the costs of traditional hardware and “cardless” CA systems.

“Evio’s system shows that partner infrastructure providers can easily build on XCA,” said Kenny Huang, General Manager of Intertrust Media Solutions. “Working rapidly after our launch last year, Evio has created a full-stack offer for operators that is robust and ready to use.”

Since Intertrust works with SoC providers and device makers to integrate XCA client technology in Smart TVs and other end-point devices, and since XCA is based on the Marlin standard, which was created by Intertrust, Panasonic, Philips, Sony and Samsung, back-end providers and operators can trust that consumers will find a broad base of devices without needing to deal with the device side themselves.

“XCA is a modern and cost-effective content protection platform that merges the best of Broadcast and Broadband TV,” said Przemek Gnitecki, CEO of Evio. “As the consumer experience in the home becomes seamless, so should the back-end technology and working with Intertrust, the inventor of DRM is by far the best way to go.”
