Today, content protection in connected devices such as tablets and smart TVs is predominantly provided by software security. The level of protection achievable in software on these platforms today does not meet the latest studio requirements for premium content. In order to provide stronger security while simplifying product development, system-on-chips (SoCs) used in Internet-enabled televisions and mobile devices have started to include integrated hardware security cores. Once designed into an SoC, these hardware security cores provide a significant increase in security without sacrificing user-friendliness, flexibility or cost. The CryptoFirewall core is the leading hardware security core for TV/video distribution. It is designed to provide the multioperator flexibility and robust security required for Over-the-Top (OTT) multi-screen distribution to connected devices.
