Viaccess-Orca says its Connected Sentinel DRM solution has completed a review by Cartesian, an independent consultancy company for the communications and digital media industries. Cartesian's Farncombe Security Audit reviews the requirements of security solutions to determine whether they meet the needs of IPTV, based on security architecture, keys generation and usage, content security, cryptographic algorithms, design, and operation environment.
"We have assessed the compliance of Connected Sentinel DRM against MovieLabs specifications for IPTV 4K premium content required by content and rights owners," said Brian Paxton, head of Security Consulting at Cartesian. "Going through the demanding process of the Farncombe Security Audit demonstrates Viaccess-Orca's commitment to developing robust solutions that answer the challenges facing content owners and providers."
