CAPE TOWN SOUTH AFRICA – Conax, a Kudelski Group company and a leader in total service protection for digital entertainment services worldwide, announced it will provide AfricaCom conference participants with critical insight on eliminating potential security pitfalls in a connected Android eco-system.
Tor Helge Kristiansen, EVP Principle Architect and senior technology advisor, will also define multiple security options available for next generation Android set-top-boxes, benefits and impact for a pay-TV service deploying Android STBs, as well as guidance for creating a compelling consumer offering and secure Android-based pay-TV proposition.
“Android, developed by Google, is one of the most popular operating systems today, used in a wide variety of industries and devices, confirms Tor Helge Kristiansen. Android TV is a very flexible platform, providing a wide array of functionality and connectivity. However, as a result, the Android platform has a large attack surface and is complex to protect – making it extremely prone to piracy.”
