Viaccess-Orca Shares Analysis on CDN Leeching in New White Paper

PARIS — April 11, 2024 — Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global leader providing OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, announced today that the company has released a new white paper titled “CDN Leeching: Understanding the Evolving Face of Piracy” offering expert analysis on CDN leeching. 

WHY: CDN leeching is the latest form of video piracy where unauthenticated users attach end points to a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to illegally access the legitimate services that the CDN carries. However, many video service providers do not have a clear understanding of the dangers presented by CDN leeching.

WHAT: Drawing from VO’s expert knowledge and thought leadership on video piracy, the new white paper examines the impact of CDN leeching on various points in the video chain — from distributors to rights holders, content owners, and consumers. The white paper provides a thorough understanding of how leeching methods are used by pirates and strategies for detecting CDN attacks, as well as solutions and best practices for combatting these growing threats.

This educational paper enables video service providers to learn about new ways to fortify their security measures, such as integrating AI and ML tools, and various other techniques, including advanced monitoring and analytics, for identifying these sophisticated pirate attacks and putting a stop to CDN leeching.
