Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Client
Robust Protection for the Mobile Content Business
Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Client protects the distribution and consumption of content on mobile devices. It is a future-ready solution, providing a complete implementation of all the major schemes in use today and the flexibility to deploy new schemes as they emerge.
A Single Solution Supporting Multiple Schemes
The mobile premium content market is evolving rapidly, with constant changes in operators' requirements. This dynamic market requires a solution that efficiently addresses today's needs and at the same time is flexible enough to adjust to new requirements.
Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Client supports numerous DRM schemes,use-cases and scenarios, utilizing a single infrastructure and integration ramework. This enables mobile phone manufacturers to support more DRM schemes and additional features on the same device, while complying with current and emerging market requirements – with minimal cost and integration efforts.
The following widely-accepted DRM schemes are supported by Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Client: OMA DRM (version 1.0, and version 2.x), Microsoft WM-DRM 10 for portable devices, ECFM and i-Mode DRM including CPRM\SD-Bind. It can be easily expanded to support emerging schemes such as Microsoft® PlayReady™, Marlin Joint Development Association initiative and Sun's DReaM.
The Highest Level of Security and Robustness
A content protection solution must address complex security flows and robustness challenges to meet the stringent requirements set by content owners and operators.
Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Client utilizes the most advanced security technologies in order to meet all such requirements. It provides the highest possible levels of security and robustness against illegal attempts to access protected content, with no degradation in performance or battery playback time.
In addition, Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Client integrates with hardware-based security technologies such as Texas Instruments' M-Shield™ and Discretix CryptoCell®. The Client utilizes cryptographic accelerators, Secure Execution Environment, secure key management, robust DRM database and security framework at the operating system level.
Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Client conforms to:
- Content Management License Administrator (CMLA) security and robustness requirements
- Microsoft security and robustness recommendations for WM-DRM implementation
- The Open Mobile Terminal Platform (OMTP) security requirements for DRM
- The 4C Consortium security and robustness requirements for CPRM implementation

|Ease of Implementation
OS and Platform Ready
Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Client is ported to a wide variety of hardware platforms, operating systems and application frameworks. It offers a unified API to the application layer (i.e. Browser, Multimedia Player and File Management applications) regardless of the underlying DRM scheme.
Ease of migration
Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Client is easily migrated to multiple hardware platforms using a thin software glue layer (Discretix Virtual Operating System). In addition, Discretix Security Middleware can deliver the security and cryptography services needed by different DRM implementations using the same API, regardless of the platform's hardware capabilities.
Supported Hardware Platforms
Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Client has been ported and deployed on multiple hardware platforms. Examples of such leading platforms include Texas Instruments OMAP™, Intel Atom, Renesas SH-Mobile, Qualcomm MSM, Marvell PXA and others.
