April 25, 2012 -- Elliptic Technologies, Inc. has formed a strategic partnership with SK Planet to enable robust security for high-definition (HD) video streaming on connected devices such as smartphones, tablets and connected TVs.
Elliptic's field proven tVault HDCP 2.1 content-protection solution incorporates the stringent robustness requirements mandated by the Digital Content Protection (DCP) licensing authority. The tVault HDCP 2.1 uses Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) and enforces the protection of sensitive information to ensure that it is stored, processed and accessed only by authorized applications. The tVault HDCP 2.1 can act as a transmitter, receiver or repeater device, runs efficiently in very limited resource environments and is available on Android and other embedded platforms for consumer electronics.
Elliptic and SK Planet have collaborated to move HD streaming media technology forward on fully featured 4G Android handsets from a world leading manufacturer. Content protection is provided by tight integration of HDCP 2.1 security with a Korean-developed Secure OS on an ARM TrustZone-based processor.
SK Planet is using the TrustZone technology on device security platforms targeted at smartphones, tablets, STBs and Smart TVs. Another area of focus for SK Planet covers personal information, media, enterprise and finance security services using TrustZone with Secure OS in conjunction with a TrustZone-enabled administration server.
