Movie Studio licensing requirements demand that premium content is protected from theft at every point in the consumption lifecycle.
Standardization bodies like GlobalPlatform and SCSA (Secure Content Storage Association) along with companies like MovieLabs (a joint-venture started by the six major movie studios) have issued specifications and guidelines to help technology and device providers satisfy these new security requirements.
To meet the stronger security guidelines set for HD/4K/Ultra-HD/HDR premium content, service providers must have a more robust and adaptive digital rights management (DRM) system.
This means that any successful hacking of a DRM system must be limited to a single platform. This in turn limits the piracy of distributed content.
The specifications also mandate the availability and use of a secure execution environment, as well as hardware Root of Trust (to make sure sensitive software is protected against software attacks) and the secure protection of outputs.
Last but not least, these new requirements include forensic watermarking so that information can be collected to address any breaches that may occur.
