Speech Title: Digital Right Management in e-commerce based on Internet
Abstract: Different from hardware/firmware, digital media can be copied easily without any loss in quality and with nearly no material cost. Moreover, mass copying of the media is the simple duplication of one single copy. Since the digital media is needed to be rendered on user's device, we can pack the original media into protected form, binding with user's device. The device (machine) is in possession of the content on behalf of the user (human). For real situation, binding and mapping a user with a specific terminal may result in inconvenience. For example, the terminal device is out of order, or the user wants to transfer the media from his office PC to his laptop computer.
Since the content itself is completely in user's PC after being downloaded, we need to monitor the rendering program instead of the content itself to restrict user’s right on the content. Targeting on specific media or format, some DRM systems modify the existed rendering program or create their own rendering program for self-defined file format. In order to create universal DRM system, we need to allow the user to use their original rendering program, that is, neither customized rendering application nor customized specific content file format is required.
The content is processed into an all-in-one package before it is downloaded to the terminal. In order to achieve native control of the user's behavior on the terminal based on the basic rights stored the packed file, some technology is employed at the user’s PC, including binding the content with unique PC hardware fingerprint, intercepting illegal operation at kernel layer, and hiding bared intermediate file and related processes with root kit technology.
