Advanced security for smart television13 September 2014
Display and digital home solutions semiconductor provider MStar has licensed the Cryptography Research CryptoFirewall security core for integration into its connected TV solution chips.
The CryptoFirewall is a self-contained ASIC security core that provides a secure hardware foundation for signal security applications, enabling a uniformly high level of security across STBs and connected TVs for secure digital distribution.
CryptoFirewall will provide operators and OTT distributors making use of the MStar-based connected TVs with hardware security to protect content and services against piracy.
This approach means MStar is integrating a provider-agnostic security block that resides within the SoC, available for all service providers.
