Based in Switzerland, FASTCOM is a global company and serves customers worldwide. FASTCOM’s MCAS is an integrated licensing authority solution that enables payTV operators to independently choose the application, middleware, and security solution running on their customer premise equipment (CPE); in this instance, the CPEs are TV set-top-boxes (STBs). Updates and changes are possible at any time for a minimum cost. The MCAS relies on the industry standards ETSI TS 103 162 -K-LAD-2010 and SCTE 201-2013, and does not use proprietary technology. FASTCOM’s products are subject to strict Swiss privacy laws, which provide additional protection to its customers. MCAS is used successfully by major payTV operators.

Solution Description

The MCAS solution uses Entrust nShield hardware security modules (HSMs) to securely generate and manage the cryptographic keys embedded within the television receiver's chipset. Entrust nShield HSMs provide a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified environment with strict dual supervision and control that establishes the foundation of trust for the licensing services authority.
