WASHINGTON -- The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) announced today the launch of the IP-based Downloadable Security Incubator (IDSI). The IDSI will specify an internal, network-delivered downloadable security solution for IPTV. It will enable operators to migrate away from external security devices, while still ensuring the delivery of copy-protected content. The IDSI is unique in that will simultaneously develop both the downloadable solution’s technical specifications, and the business requirements necessary for its commercial implementation.

The solution will enable operators to reduce costs, and more easily accommodate downloadable security replacements and upgrades. ATIS is undertaking this effort to provide a renewable, acceptable, extensible and compatible security solution in IPTV Terminal Function (ITF) devices. As the solution will be incorporated in a certified and non-removable component housed in the ITF device, it will reduce overall costs and enable the solution’s easy and autonomous upgradeability.

“Ensuring the simple and secure delivery of copy-protected content is critical to IPTV’s future growth,” said Susan Miller, ATIS President and CEO. “By incorporating this internal solution, the IDSI will ensure the realization of a secure, scalable and economically efficient solution that comprehensively addresses the needs of end-users, operators and device manufacturers.”

The IDSI has scheduled its first meeting for March 18, 2009, in Washington, D.C. The first meeting will be open to all interested parties. For more information on IDSI, please contact Jim Turner at: [email protected].
