Alticast and Intel Team to Secure 4K UHD Content on Windows

Alticast has announced that it has significantly extended the security capabilities of the Alticast AltiProtect product to 4K UHD content running on Windows platforms.

Alticast has integrated Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) technology into the AltiProtect Multi-DRM product to eliminate exposure to untrusted areas, enable secure delivery of 4K UHD online video content from servers to client devices, and prevent copying of content from GPU memory.

Using multiple security mechanisms, AltiProtect enables a transparent customer experience and a single point of control for delivery of content streams from multiple sources within multi-service, multi-device environments. Intel SGX provides the Trusted Execution Environment platform that ensures the confidentiality and integrity of software code and data.

Studio-approved and highly rated by Telcordia, AltiProtect uses well-defined industry standards to ensure reliable content protection for broadcast and VOD, and can easily adapt to unique network infrastructures. AltiProtect is being used by CJ HelloVision, the largest pay-TV operator in South Korea, to secure the world’s first launch of UHD pay-TV service.
