Re: open-source DRM

Michael Hall
 

Keep in mind that DRM isn't about encryption, that's just a means to an end. DRM is about preventing piracy and enabling flexible pricing models. If you come up with a better way of encrypting the data, without giving a better outcome to those goals, then it's a non-starter. Likewise if you come up with a better way of achieving those goals that doesn't use encryption at all, that's something worth considering.

I could be totally wrong and maybe this approach has already been considered but what about finding a way to put the content on a blockchain with multi-signature smart contracts? Granted the information would live on the blockchain but access is only granted through a mutual agreement and everyone else would be locked out. I know blockchains are a buzzword lately but I do see a lot of potential in their application. I'm not sure if what you're proposing is more for a full-fledged streaming service like Netflix or simply giving someone from the press access from home for a preview. I think the blockchain approach might work better for a preview rather than a full streaming service.

open-source DRM

Mike Wilkes
 

I'm told that IP hinders if not entirely obviates the possibility of creating a reasonable open-source DRM solution. That may well be the case.

In addition to that, the point of security is to protect the user from external attackers. But in the DRM threat model, the user is the attacker essentially and the rights owner is the defender.

Most (streaming) DRM approaches simply try to hide the key and make it time-bound. But in cryptography it's hard to make that anything other than an all or nothing proposition. How can the user be trusted to decrypt the asset and not take advantage of access to the unencrypted data? Are there any frameworks that can be applied to solve the problem and deliver (what I believe to be) a needed solution?

Hi Jordan,

  Thanks for writing and your interest. One of the first items of business for the new ASWF will be to create the "project submission process". This will allow new and existing projects to be submitted to the ASWF, allow them to be evaluated to insure they are a fit into the mission and resources, and then accepted into the ASWF. Our conversations to date have been around some critical existing projects for the media business whose maintainers have expressed interest. Projects like OpenEXR, OpenColorIO and OpenVDB have been discussed so far. There are a lot more, but the ASWF will have to evaluate each to make sure the resources to host the community are in place to take on more projects.

  To get some background on how the Linux Foundation generally approaches project submissions, you might like reading this presentation by Chris Aniszczyk (https://www.slideshare.net/caniszczyk/bringing-an-open-source-project-to-the-linux-foundation). Each organization under the LF (of which ASWF is one) specifies their own submission process so the ASWF may have some customization, but I think those slides provide some good background.

  Hope that help.

Sincerely,

Rob Bredow

Yes – the group is literally only hours old.  More info to come over the next few days of SIGGRAPH, Rob to speak Monday, and a BOF Tues 9am.   Stay tuned and hope you find some interesting projects.

It seems this all went live today. Based on a Variety article, the head of ILM, Rob Bredow, will be mentioning it in his Siggraph keynote on Monday. We're likely to get some more info from that, so we might just need to be patient until then.

 

Cheers,

Mike

This group seems very new and i'm somehow the first one to post. That being said, what projects would we like to pursue? I would very much like to be a part of whatever we come up with on here.

 

 


open source 2d animation software

David Marceau
 

I recall 3d blender started as proprietary then made open-source via buyout.

Any chance this foundation could do the same with ToonBoom?

Thank you for listening.
