STMicroelectronics arms Pay-TV in battle against piracy

STMicroelectronics is sampling the first STB System-on-Chip devices featuring advanced CryptoFirewall security helping to prevent hacking of pay-TV broadcast signals.
Pay-TV piracy - illicit decryption of signals for viewing or redistribution - costs billions of dollars per year globally in lost revenues, according to industry bodies such as the National Cable Telecommunications Association in the US and the Cable And Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia.

To overcome these vulnerabilities in established security architectures, the CryptoFirewall security core developed by Cryptography Research. and now integrated in ST’s set-top box ICs features dedicated tamper-proof and emulation-resistant hardware designed to work with the STB’s conditional access system.
