AWS launches Open API Specification

Simplified Encryption for Live and On-demand Media Workflows

Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) release an open, extensible API specification developed to streamline integration of Digital Rights Management (DRM) with encoders, transcoders, and origin servers (encryptors): the Secure Packager and Encoder Key Exchange (Speke).

So far, most integration required a custom API for each DRM solutions provider and each encryptor, which proved costly and time consuming, and often delayed the launch of new services. Speke provides a standardized method for key exchange between encryptors and DRM systems. It also enables the using of Speke -enabled key servers or encryptors in onpremises, cloud, or hybrid infrastructures.

Speke provides a universal, secure way for Speke -enabled key servers and encryptors to encrypt content, built on the DASH Industry Forum’s Content Protection Information Exchange Format (CPIX) standard for key exchange.

An API specification supports HLS, MSS and DASH packaging as well as standard DRM platforms, including Apple FairPlay Streaming, Microsoft PlayReady, Google Widevine, AES-128, and proprietary DRMs.
