Some say that we are living in a new era of Television, I think that is true. Consumers have an ever expanding choice of content to view. And in today’s connected world, they have a wide array of channels, devices and apps at their disposal to watch their favorite program at any time and on any device. But how do incumbent pay-TV operators keep up?
No choice but to deliver
If the consumer can’t get what they want, they look elsewhere, and elsewhere is quite often the illegal alternatives.
We live in a very different world today than we did 10-20 years ago. We’ve never been more connected. So, it’s surprising that software security practices remain in the realm of “We’ve always done it this way before”. Can they really expect to solve today’s security problems with an old way of thinking?
Traditional thinking typically starts with the premise that honest parties control the computer devices and any cryptographic operations are performed free from interference from would-be attackers. Given this, it’s probably understandable
Cryptography is no longer limited to the military and spies. This ancient art underpins modern life. It’s about encoding intelligible data, e.g. numbers, text and transforming them into something unreadable to anyone other than who the information is meant for. The question is, does it need an upgrade for today’s always connected world?
How secure is your house?
Hundreds of times a day we use cryptography in our everyday life. From the lock on the website that you’re browsing, remotely unlocking your car with the key fob to using all kinds of devices.
