Anti-Hacking, Security and Robustness Shield
Connected Sentinel Player security relies on several security mechanisms to prevent hackers from cloning the secure players on other devices, getting access to content encryption keys, getting access to video in clear. Components of the Connected Sentinel Player are protected with elements such as secure storage, encryption functions, sensitive code and data obfuscation, and code integrity checks. These technologies enable service providers to disable the application and revoke all content licenses in case of abuse or hacking. Security features include device rooting and jail-breaking detection, output protection level control and application personalization and registration.
