Content security – a continuing battle against the pirates
This is Swindon's first on-line event.
As soon as pay TV services were introduced, pirates started trying to overcome the ways broadcasters limited access to their content. The talk begins by looking at the fundamentals of how modern, digital TV is protected and then the ways that the threats from the pirates have evolved and the measures that have had to be taken to try and overcome them. This back and forth technology battle has at times been variously referred to as “a game of cat and mouse” and “whack-a-mole”.
There are also a number of lessons we can learn that are relevant to trying to avoid the same types of problems in new, in-home technology such as IoT devices and the talk will wrap up by looking at some of these issues.
