Ahead of technology and attacker capabilities

Pay TV is traditionally a frequent target for pirates to attack. At the same time, the security architecture of Pay TV operations is becoming increasingly complex, as new services such as Video-on-Demand and Catch-up TV are offered using IP, and Over-The-Top TV (OTT) lifts off. Riscure helps Pay TV operators, manufacturers and CA/DRM vendors that need to take informed business decision about piracy risks in order to maximize their revenue. Riscure Security Lab is the most trusted security service in the industry, delivering to-the-point security assessments and cutting edge knowledge about attacks. Our security targets include for example consumer devices (STB’s, smart phones, tablets, etc); chipsets inside these devices; hardware and software CA/DRM technology; and network security and availability. Our tests can be focused on any stage in the life cycle, from the initial design to the final deployment in the field.

Our approach implies that we continuously look for different, yet practical ways to break into the system. Therefore we spend significant time researching security technology trends and attacker capabilities. As part of that we contribute to security conferences and publish scientific papers. This knowledge also feeds back into our products and services in the form of cutting-edge attacks. For example, Riscure Security Lab can perform EM Fault Injection as part of our service.
