Viaccess-Orca and Rambus Boost Security in TVs and STBs

Viaccess-Orca is working with Rambus Inc to develop a hardware VO Shield Root of Trust (RoT) solution for multimedia chips that might be used in Smart TVs and STBs. The company said that the VO Shield algorithm can be modified after deployment. The technology can be combined with other security features including Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) and security co-processors.

Cédric Hardouin, Executive VP R&D at Viaccess-Orca said;

“We have been investigating several tracks in the silicon domain to strengthen our security offering, and Rambus provides best-in-class technology to protect against hardware compromises. With CryptoMedia Content Protection Core already available in the chipsets of main silicon vendors, and roll-outs with Tier 1 operators expected to take place before the end of this year, Rambus offers a proven approach that greatly benefits our customers as they look to provide a superior and more secure content experience.”
