Streaming has long surpassed cable TV for our entertainment needs! So, what makes it possible for us to safely stream content directly into our homes? And how do we know what we’re streaming isn’t pirated in some way? Tom and Camille are joined by Avi Wachtfogel, Engineering Fellow and Senior Director of Security Strategy at Synamedia, as they dive into how content producers and distributors are keeping content secure in a world of piracy and streaming. The three discuss the challenges of of securing media content, how hardware and software technologies have been used on the service protection side to solve the problem of bootleg cable and other content security concerns of the 90s and 2000s, how over the top (OTT) streaming distributes video content over high-speed Internet connection (think Netflix, HBO Max, etc.), licensing agreements and deciphering whether or not digital content is pirated, the risks of credential fraud, how to stay protected with encryption, the challenge of countering piracy, and more. Streaming lovers—you won’t want to skip this one!
