Essential Guide: Secure IP Infrastructures For Broadcasters

Security is becoming increasingly important for broadcasters looking to transition to IP infrastructures. But creating improved software, firewalls and secure networks is only half the story as cybercriminals look to find new and imaginative methods of compromising data.

In this Essential Guide, we look at the new methods of attack cybercriminals are resorting to. We discover how disk drives and other intelligent peripheral devices within servers can be hacked. And we investigate the remedies high-end enterprise IT infrastructure vendors are adopting to keep our data secure.

Part 1 introduces how servers are made more secure. An in-depth description of how devices can be compromised is introduced with the remedies available to keep hackers out.

Part 2 explores Lights Out out-of-band Control and the critically important role it plays in verifying low-level server firmware, even before the CPU starts operating. The secure silicon root of trust is introduced along with the major benefits it provides for security.

Part 3 discusses secure virtualization and how encrypted VMs can help broadcasters deliver even higher levels of security. And discover how binary translation has been superseded by hardware virtualization and the benefits it brings.

This Essential Guide concludes with a sponsor’s perspective from HPE OEM Solutions and discusses their practical solutions to firmware vulnerabilities and specifically their secure silicon root of trust.

Mr. Orme:

Thanks for a good and appropriate piece of work. Security, or it’s misnomer ‘cybersecurity’ has to be one of the topics of high current interest. For Broadcast/Media planning, design and technical operations practitioners, I would suggest consideration of a similar level article on network aspects. One of the more impressive sets of evolutionary progress can be examined in the not too well-known world of Industrial Control Systems. Why this has not been considered more broadly in content production and distribution is surprising. If you’re interested, I can provide more information and potentially, assistance.
Keep up the good work!
