Smartphone and Tablet Makers Looking to Protect HD Content
Dec 19, 2011, 9:42 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Panasonic, Samsung, Sandisk, Sony, and Toshiba today announced that they've agreed to collaborate on a project called the Next Generation Secure Memory Initiative. This new initiative's purpose is to license and promote a security solution that can protect HD content stored on SD cards and embedded memory used in devices such as tablets and smartphones. The solution will use things such as unique IDs for flash memory and copy protection based on public keys. The companies believe that the new model will be up and running by early 2012, and will allow HD content owners to disseminate their content securely to devices using flash and other embedded memory solutions. The "Next Generation Secure Memory Initiative" moniker is temporary, and the collective will formalize a new name in the months to come.
