Keys & Credentials for Set-Top Boxes

An advanced Key Provisioning Service

Meeting your customers’ demands is the key to staying relevant. Operators know this all too well: being able to launch new services quickly, introduce new features or update deployed STBs with ease is at the heart of delighting your customers. However, this isn’t always possible. Many operators are held back by the limitations in components or capabilities which are dictated by their current conditional access vendor. Yet with the competitive market pressure today, this is no longer acceptable. This is why we developed Irdeto Keys & Credentials for STBs: a vendor neutral, managed security service operated by Irdeto as an independent Trust Authority. From its dedicated, secure production facilities, Irdeto removes the burden of ongoing security operations and key management.

Acting on your behalf, Irdeto manages all the processes and workflows for the provisioning of all security keys and certificates for new service activation. This includes security asset production, technical integration with manufacturing facilities, updating in-field devices and even revocation.

The result is that you avoid technology lock-in, gain full control over your content distribution platforms and speed up time to market.
