SiliconFreak -> Helius brings software-based encryption to Internet TV ! (5/12/2006 1:15:26 PM)

Helius, Inc., has just introduced its  MediaLock for IPTV, a software based encryption algorithm for securing access and use of for-pay downloaded multimedia content.
According to Ron Heinz, Chairman and CEO of Helius, Inc., the use of IP to deliver entertainment is growing rapidly and the two biggest concerns are secure delivery and access control.
Historically, he said, broadcast systems have been limited by their dependency on smart card and other hardware centric technologies. To solve this, he said, MediaLock for IPTV is a software based system utilizing IPSEC and industry standard encryption algorithms to maintain the security of each transmission to its intended point of consumption.
MediaLock for IPTV will consist of a client that runs on the provider Set Top Box (STB) which interacts with a MediaLock Server and Gateway.
"A software-key, IPSEC implementation is the best way to protect delivery of IPTV content in a real time environment," said Mike Tippets, CTO of Helius, Inc. "The ability to change the encryption key at anytime providesthe required flexibility of a real-time delivery environment."
