Mindport Sentriq is to integrate Baltimore security into its Internet media products to enable the secure delivery of view-on-demand content online.
The integration of the Baltimore UniCert PKI system will allow digital content to be securely streamed over the Internet, so that content providers can offer video-on-demand, e-music and pay-per-view media content. This solution will also open up vast resources of material only available through traditional TV and video rental outlets at the moment.
“The Internet coupled with digital video technology is set to transform the entertainment industry. Security, in particular authentication of users, is critical to make this happen,” said Mitch Webster, chief operating officer of Mindport Sentriq. “This will allow more consumers to access video content more quickly and cost-effectively over the Internet.”
The combined solution will allow the use of digital certificates and signatures to attest to the identity of users and devices for the secure delivery of pay media content online. Baltimore UniCert is an award-winning PKI system used in eSecurity solutions worldwide for eBusiness and enterprise systems.
The Mindport Sentriq range is tightly integrated into media infrastructures and allows for hardware- and software-based PKI authentication of viewers.
“Strong authentication of the end-user is key to the delivery of new digital content over broadband networks such as DSL and cable. Baltimore eSecurity technology provides this foundation of trust by binding a user’s identity to their digital certificate,” said Peter Doyle, vice president of marketing at Baltimore Technologies.
