Measures for DRM Implementations

    VIENNA, VA., November 26 /CNW/ - Please replace the release with the
following corrected version due to multiple revisions.

    The corrected release reads:


    Security Assessment Methodology Delivers Industry-Leading Security
Measures for DRM Implementations

    Cloakware Inc., the security solutions provider that makes security
inseparable from software, today announced the availability of Cloakware's
Conformance Assessment Service, which determines if a consumer electronics
device or application meets licensing requirements for content protection

    In order to carry licensed digital content, OEMs need to conform with
Compliance and Robustness Rules - a set of guidelines designed to ensure
licensed content is securely and properly managed. If a device or application
has a demonstrable security or compliance defect, the manufacturer faces legal
and financial damages in addition to putting its brand at risk.

    Cloakware's Conformance Assessment Service is directed towards
manufacturers and ISVs who are implementing content protection standards such
as DTCP-IP, Marlin, OMA DRM, or Microsoft's WMDRM and PlayReady. The service
includes discovery interviews, architectural consultation and a threat/attack
analysis designed specifically for each standard. The service provides
detailed information on whether Compliance and/or Robustness Rules are met for
both software and hardware components, as well as identifies potential
security weaknesses and remedies.

    After a decade in business and over one billion client applications
deployed worldwide, Cloakware has an unmatched breadth of experience in
software security and Digital Rights Management (DRM). The company has helped
implement a wide range of content protection standards and link protection
protocols, including proprietary schemes, on PCs, handsets, portable media
players and set-top boxes.

    "We understand that implementing DRM can be challenging," said Alec Main,
Cloakware's CTO. "Every platform has unique features which impact performance
and security. We understand the trade-offs required to bring new offerings to
market quickly, while having to meet licensing requirements both now and going
forward - such as consideration to software renewability and downloadable DRM.
Our third party perspective gives manufacturers confidence and lets them focus
on bringing innovative offerings to market that give their customers the
digital flexibility they desire."
