ALi announcec it has completed the integration of the Cryptography Research's CryptoFirewall security technology into its multimedia STB SoC products. The CryptoFirewall core will be available in the ALi DVB-S2, DVB-C, DVB-T2, ISDB-T, and IP STB chipsets beginning in 2013.

ALi’s new generation of SOCs address the full range of cable, satellite, terrestrial, and hybrid solutions from feature to smart STBs. The advanced CryptoFirewall security core integrated into ALi STB chipsets will provide the pay TV ecosystem with a new way to implement robust hardware security design by a leader in smart card security.

The CryptoFirewall core is a self-contained ASIC security core that provides a secure hardware foundation for signal security applications. The core is designed to protect cryptographic keys and computations within a chip, even if surrounding components are compromised. The CryptoFirewall core is integrated directly into video decoding SoCs from the leading manufacturers supplying the set-top box chip market. It provides a robust and cost-effective solution that is complementary with hardware and software-based conditional access solutions, protecting against piracy of content and services.
