Korea-based fabless semiconductor maker Telechips has embedded the Inside Secure DRM Fusion Agent services for high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) and digital transmission content protection (DTCP-IP) into its TCC892X family of set-top box multimedia application processors. Using the Inside technology and a trusted execution environment (TEE) based on the Solacia SecuriTEE secure operating system, Telechips aims to provide manufacturers with hardware-secured Miracast and DLNA standards-compliant premium content protection for HD set-top boxes.
The Solacia operating system provides a hardware-software security architecture that stores, processes and protects sensitive data in a dedicated trusted zone based on the ARM TrustZone chipset architecture. The TrustZone architecture specifies the use of a physically separate, secure hardware zone implemented in silicon, and a distinct, trusted operating system to create a trusted execution environment for running secure applications like the Inside DRM Fusion Agent software.
In addition to the DTCP-IP and HDCP 2.2 specifications, the Inside DRM Fusion Agent services also support DRM standards, including the Microsoft PlayReady, Windows Media DRM, Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) and DECE UltraViolet standards. The Inside DRM Fusion Agent content protection services are available as software for use in trusted execution environments, such as those based on the ARM TrustZone architecture, or as a dedicated, highly secure and optimized hardware module for devices not utilizing a TEE.
