Farncombe hails cardless CA for some broadcast networks

Farncombe hails cardless CA for some broadcast networks | C2M : veille Digital Media | Scoop.it

A Farncombe White Paper looking at broadcast content security has concluded that is is now appropriate to use of cardless CA solutions in a one-way network in certain scenarios, namely:

- Where the Pay TV operator involved has a low reach and therefore a low potential customer base for the pirate);

- Where the operator has a low volume of premium content that is not available elsewhere;

- Where the operator is in a market with high broadband penetration and speeds;

- Where it is being used for free-to-air services that are applying geographical restrictions.

 

According to the consulting firm, which has a long heritage in content security, these are the circumstances where the incentives for pirates to attack the network are low, as long as barriers to hacking are kept sufficiently high. The lack of reach or premium content obviously reduces the value of the service for hacking. The reason high broadband speeds are relevant is because this makes illegal content redistribution easier and Farncombe explains in the paper that content redistribution will become the main piracy threat over the next five years
