Elliptic offers highly integrated and proven security solutions spanning silicon cores to embedded software to help content owners, service providers, network operators, embedded system OEMs and SoC suppliers protect high-value digital content for the home entertainment and digital media market.
DRM and Content protection applications encompass all connected consumer electronics that enable users to enjoy high quality video and audio media-rich content anywhere, at any time and on any device. These connected devices include smartphones, tablets, PCs, laptops, HDTVs, Blu-ray players, set-top boxes (STBs), and home media gateways.
Digital Rights Management (DRM) is coming together with Microsoft Windows DRM and HDCP leading the way with Open Mobile Alliance DRM (OMA) gathering momentum as deployment experience grows. Consumers have demonstrated their thirst for high value content and service providers are motivated to offer it and increase their average revenue per user (ARPU).
Elliptic has designed Digital Rights Management products that span both mobile applications and set-top boxes. The highest volume DRM market is the personal media player (PMP) which is dominated by the Apple iPOD that uses the proprietary DRM technology FairPlay. Second overall in volume is the large population of MP-3 players which implement Microsoft DRM or PlaysForSure. Elliptic has developed the ESM-03 which is specifically targeted at this cost sensitive market.
The ESM-03 can easily be extended to offer a solution for the Mobile Multi-media Processor (MMP) market which is targeted at applications in mobile handsets In this case, the solution must include support for the Open Mobile Alliance DRM design and may require the inclusion of Elliptic's public key acceleration core to offload the processor from the very heavy RSA 1024 operation required for authentication and key derivation.
The HDCP 2.0 Software Development Kit (ESW-02) is Elliptic's solution in support of the HDCP 2.0 content protection standard. The solution is targeted at OEMs and embedded system and device manufacturers, and can be seamlessly integrated into embedded components for use in tablets, media centers, DVDs, HDTVs, set top boxes, game consoles, streaming controllers, laptops and other consumer electronic products.
Elliptic has also developed a solution which is targeted at the DTCP market. The solution includes both IP cores and a DTCP stack to speed development of embedded systems targeted at protection of high value content in IP, USB and Firewire applications.
ETS-020: tVault HDCP 2.2
A proven HDCP-based content protection solution that provides robust security inside Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) and enforces the protection of sensitive information to ensure that it is stored, processed and accessed only by authorized applications.The solution integrates seamlessly within frameworks such as ARM TrustZone™, where the critical security components are embedded in a trusted and secure OS environment. The non-critical components are executed by the rich OS, such as Android.
