FASTCOM Technology SA presents its MCAS solution at IBC 2017
FASTCOM presents MCAS for integrated management of keys and credentials.
The MCAS avoids security vendor lock-in for pay-TV operators.
The MCAS allows for multiple CAS/DRM to operate on the same STB.
MCAS builds on industry standards such as ETSI TS 103 162 (K-LAD 2010), SSL, TLS and PKCS.
LAUSANNE, Switzerland - August 28th, 2017
MCAS is a complete solution of Licensing Authority Services (LAS) for connected devices. It allows managing the needed keys and credentials during their whole life-cycle, from production and provisioning to maintenance, revocation and support.
MCAS can manage multiple security keys and credential at the same time and is based on industry standards. Typical connected devices are set-top boxes (STBs). Thanks to MCAS, the operator keeps the direct control over the STBs deployed in the field, while preserving the security level of proprietary security solutions (e.g. CA, DRM, SSL).
MCAS empowers the operator to freely choose the applications, the middleware and the security solutions for its STBs. If required, a multi-vendor approach is also possible. Updates and changes are possible at any time for a minimum cost, even when the STBs are deployed in the field.
As a company, FASTCOM is fully independent from any vendor. Furthermore, all keys and credentials managed by MCAS are subject to the Swiss laws, which provide an additional protection for our clients.
FASTCOM is a Swiss-based company leading in standard-based solutions for the payTV security market, such as licensing authority services and consulting services. FASTCOM is independent and neutral towards any security, STB and chipset vendor. FASTCOM has expertise in security standards such as SCTE 201 2013 and ETSI TS 103 162 (K-LAD 2010).
