Overview

A timely reference in the innovative and cutting-edge field of multimedia security!

Digital Rights Management (DRM) defines a set of tools that manage the secured use of digital media content found on static and mobile electronic devices, ranging from personal computers and PDAs to digital video recorders and MP3 players. While it's true that some antiquated techniques still work well, various state-of-the-art multimedia security technologies have emerged to wage a more adaptive and efficient battle on behalf of 21st century intellectual property owners.

The editors of this contributed volume have created a groundbreaking resource, meticulously assembled for maximum utility. Enriched by sample application scenarios and algorithms, this book provides an in-depth examination of present and future field technologies including encryption, authentication, copy control, tagging, tracing, conditional access, and media identification. Contributors include technological visionaries and leading researchers in the field, many of whom are active DRM standards contributors, industrial practitioners, and copyright lawyers.

This comprehensive book is perfect for engineers or project managers working on the development of a DRM system or those who plan to offer tutorials on multimedia security. Systems engineers and researchers in industry and academia will find this technical reference book invaluable.

KEY FEATURES
*Discusses state-of-the-art multimedia authentication and fingerprinting techniques
*Presents several practical methodologies from industry, including broadcast encryption, digital media forensics, and 3D mesh watermarking
*Focuses on the need for a complete DRM approach to security in multimedia applications found on computer networks, cell phones, and emerging mobile computing devices
