Deploying a DRM solution can be broken down into two major block processes; encrypting or “packaging” your content and decrypting it and playing it back. This lock and key arrangement is in place in literally thousands of locations in your daily life whether it be an ATM validating your debit card or your car door opening when you push the button on the remote.
DRM systems enable the preservation of content owners’ rights wherever the content travels acting as a portable digital media firewall. To view the content the user must be capable of receiving a license key to unlock the video files before playing them back. This license key typically has the content owner or licensee’s digital rights expressed inside of it as rights objects. This entire secure process typically happens in less than a second.
