from Macrovision and Broadcom on how they are producing a
digital rights management platform - on a Linux-based set-top box.
"The Broadcom DRM Tool Kit consists of a suite of silicon
solutions and software drivers that provide end-to-end security and
rights management of digital content in home networking and
entertainment applications. Included in the suite of services are
decryption and encryption engines, authentication services, tamper
detection services, and digital recording management services.
While much of this work can probably remain proprietary legally, they will
have to release their kernel changes; it will be interesting to see how
forthcoming they are with that code.
