Advanced security for smart television

Publish date:

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.
