At Rambus, we create cutting-edge semiconductor and IP products, spanning memory and interfaces to security, smart sensors and lighting.
Designed to complement our CryptoMedia Content Protection Core (CPC) as a cost-effective digital content broadcast and streaming security platform, our CryptoMedia Content Protection Services (CPS) provide pay TV operators and over-the-top (OTT) media providers robust security infrastructure integration for cryptographic data delivery. The CPS allows for the conditional access systems (CAS) and DRM to be quickly and easily integrated with the CPC, reducing time to market and enabling dramatically reduced cost cardless set top box (STB) design.

Headend CryptoManager (HCM) Server: the HCM Server is a specialized rack mount appliance that provides a secure mechanism for generating the cryptographic data needed to secure the digital content. It interfaces with the CAS and provider’s headend to give the cryptographic keys for encryption and decryption in a cardless STB.
Differentiation Vector (DV): these are device specific encrypted messages that are generated by Rambus Security and stored in the content provider’s headend which configure the CPC with the proper data for content decryption.
Encrypted Rights Key (ERK): Similar to the DV, the ERK is an encrypted message that authorizes specific content to be accessible for a specified period of time for use in pay per view (PPV) or subscription applications. ERKs are either generated directly by the HCM Server or by Rambus Security and stored in the provider’s headend.
Integration and Support Services: in order to reduce the costs and time associated with system integration, we offer engineering services to help get your STB design and security infrastructure up and running as quickly as possible. Additionally, we have a 24/7-support service to maximize your system uptime and minimize service disruptions.
Our CryptoMedia CPS solutions are designed to seamlessly integrate with a cardless STBs, Smart TVs and other devices using our CPC that is embedded in the multimedia chipset to provide robust device security. The combination of the CPS and CPC allows for content providers to securely protect their content and easily provide service tier and PPV content to their customers via a robust hardware root of trust. Additionally, our professional services decrease the time to integrate our solutions into your security ecosystem and provide support should you need it.
