Objectives: The business driver for Irdeto in this work package is: With digital set-top boxes, and even TV sets, becoming more powerful and more interactive (now often with two-way communication and being hooked up to the internet), it is possible to offer new services to end-users.
Attractive services lie in the domain of eHealth, where one can setup groups dedicated to patients with similar symptoms. Irdeto is interested in securing these services, both at the user and at the data warehouse site. Irdeto would consider both hardware solutions (preferably even by retrofitting already deployed hardware), and software security solutions using Irdeto’s Cloakware product line. A second business driver for Irdeto would be to enable these services in its middleware.
