Today's connected devices - including web TVs and hybrid STBs - embody a new era in consumer electronics, allowing unparalleled access to content and unlimited options to consumers. In this new age of Over-The-Top TV (OTT-TV), device manufacturers and service providers require robust content protection schemes that are approved by studios, yet are flexible enough to support multiple business models and new use cases. Companies such as Netflix are driving requirements for highly secure DRM implementations on mobile platforms. Recently, Netflix wrote a blog entry explaining that they cannot support Android-based platforms at this time because of insufficient security mechanisms for these platforms.
