Platform for Digital Right Management
Certicom introduces Certicom Security for DRM, a comprehensive product that implements digital rights management (DRM) agents as part of a trusted platform. The company delivers DRM robustness for multimedia-capable mobile phones, handheld devices, consumer electronic devices, and set-top boxes with a platform that includes the Certicom Security Architecture and Certicom KeyInject. Certicom Security Architecture secures device software and leverages hardware-based security in silicon. It includes a pre-integrated Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) DRM Agent from Beep Science and is extensible to other DRM schemes. Certicom KeyInject monitors and controls keying material during device manufacture. Through a new partnership with Elliptic Semiconductor, Certicom also offers pre-integrated hardware intellectual property (IP) cores that enable chip designers to include hardware-based security for DRM in their own media co-processor designs. With these IP cores, processor designers can exploit the performance and security benefits derived from implementing cryptography and key management functions in hardware. For device manufacturers using off the shelf silicon, the company offers board support packages that leverage hardware security available in leading chipsets from Intel and Freescale Semiconductor.
