Digital Rights Management (DRM) in CMS

Digital Rights Management (DRM) is defined as the rules, concepts and functions according to which content owners can

Distribute various forms of content

Maintain visibility to its creators

Determine the means in which that content can be used, reused, purchased, copied, and distributed by its users.

The two central issues to digital rights management are identifying content and protecting that content from unauthorized use. The ability for publishers to integrate digital asset and rights management functionality will play a major role in determining their place in the world of future publishing and content distribution.

One of the solutions is to provide a standard, universal content ID that publishers can use internally to manage content and externally to enable e-commerce services among various vendors. This powerful feature is the basis for verifying content authenticity and enabling authorized access. Content Directions offers a full range of consulting and implementation services to help your clients put their content in a form that facilitates your business, reduces your costs, increases speed to market and enhances profitability.

In the Digital Rights Management system, various persistent protection solutions are used to perform different operations. These methods consist of the following primary technology components:

  • Packagers, which assemble content and metadata into, secure files that are called packages, containers or envelopes.
  • Controllers, which are small programs and reside on client devices. They authenticate the identities of the devices and/or users that request access to content, verify the nature of the access requested, decrypt the content, and provide the access.
  • License servers, which create and distribute encrypted licenses, which are also called as tickets, permits, or vouchers. These permits describe rights to content, the identities of the users or devices to which the rights are granted.
