We’ll start off by defining video encryption. Video encryption is a security measure used to thwart the interception of video data and information by unwanted or unauthorized personnel. This is typically useful for individuals sharing sensitive information that they do not want to be leaked, example movie screener being streamed from a producer’s account, video evidence being played in court, new footage being reviewed in a meeting. Users would upload sensitive content to rsaplay , a cloud video encryption source to secure their media for secure playback at any time.
The encryption is achieved through the shuffling or scrambling of video information which if intercepted would be nothing but garble to unauthorized viewers. The fragmenting of the media information is for all intents and purposes the less involved or elemental part of encryption, it is when the media is to be unencrypted which consumes a lot of CPU power and process intensity .But fortunately in this day and age of technology there are many hardware solutions available which may the process easy and undetectable to the end user that the media being viewed or listened to is encrypted and being decrypted on the fly.
Line Inversion- As the name suggests the means that inversion is the scrambling method being utilized as a form encryption, and it can do all or part of the scan lines. An advantage of using this method is that it is simple and cheap encryption method, but it does offer poor video decryption quality and low security since the scan lines are only inverted.
Sync Suppression- This method is a bit cleverer as it hides or removes the vertical and horizontal lines in the video media. Advantage to this method is that it is also a cheap solution and it offer good quality visual after a video is decrypted. The bad side to this is that it is not compatible with most video hardware on the market today, and how well the encryption is, is dependent on the content of the video itself
Line Shuffle- This method uses on screen reordering to present a obfuscated media. The advantage of this is that it the video signal it emits is widely compatible as well as it offers decent obscurity and good decoded video playback quality. The downside to this is that it requires a lot of space for storage and the stability of the decode video is weak at best.
So it all boils down to having good hardware that meets your infrastructure needs and business goals, because if your hardware isn’t top notch, why bother? The experience for your users will not be a good one and the encryption method used will be easily circumvented. Unlike television stations which do decrypt their channel streams using a simple encryption method but use the law to prevent anyone from intercepting their streams. RSAplay uses a very high 2048bit RSA encryption method which guarantees high level security for encrypted streaming video ,privacy and also excellent quality decoded media. All media uploaded to rsaplay is uploaded through an encrypted connection and all files stored on their servers are using encrypted cloud storage. This all mean a positive experience for all who come into contact with rsaplay.
