Media Content Protection in Digital Signage
A prevalent security hole in many digital signage installations is, for the most part, being ignored. Generally, there is a lack of media content protection, which could lead to unlawful copying or unauthorized content playing on digital signage displays. Imagine a hacker stealing an advertisement or movie trailer, or worse, sabotaging a signage system and playing objectionable content on displays.
The surging demand for playing dynamic media content at any location, which is managed and scheduled from a central point, is increasing content vulnerability. In the past, digital signage systems were relatively closed and independent, but today, devices are connected to widely used LANs and require security to protect against malware and malfeasance. Moreover, remote displays connected via the public Internet are particularly susceptible targets because, in addition to communicating over an unprotected network, someone can physically tamper with the device.
