Irdeto's solution is designed to be interoperable and backward-compatible. It's intended to detect pirated content on peer-to-peer sharing networks by applying an invisible "watermark" that ties redistributed content back to any set-top box from which it originated: from there, content owners can identify and shut down illegal distribution networks. In the event of an attack, the solution can be renewed from the headend almost instantly without requiring updates to the box itself.
