Executive Summary

Normally, the multimedia content provider and network service providers are separated in mobile TV systems. The TV programs are broadcasted from the content provider to the mobile terminals through Digital Video Broadcasting Transmission System for Handheld Terminals (DVB-H), and the access information is unicasted from the service provider to the user via General Packet Radio Services (GPRS) networks. Due to the network architecture heterogeneity, protocols variation and algorithms difference, securing mobile TV content is becoming a significant challenge. In this paper, authors present the architecture, protocol, user identification and Digital Right Management (DRM) for protecting mobile TV multimedia content. The network architecture describes the integrated DVB-H and GPRS to provide secure mobile TV services.
