A Rich Digital Rights Management Platform into Select Qualcomm Chipsets

To deliver trusted services, Qualcomm has taken a leading role in the development of security solutions for chipsets. The SecureMSM® security suite, a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., is a key component of Qualcomm’s multimedia suite, providing operators, manufacturers and wireless users confidence in the integrity and security of the wireless network and the wireless device. New, attractive services are enabled by maintaining the confidentiality and integrity of value-added services, in addition to providing protection for the distribution of premium digital media.

The introduction of a rich digital rights management (DRM) platform into select Qualcomm chipsets enables new and compelling business models. Operators will see increased average revenue per user (ARPU) as a result of the value-added, secure services that are readily deployable with the SecureMSM security suite.

Available to both browsers and wireless applications written with Qualcomm's BREW® system or Java® applications, SecureMSM software conforms to the three methods of Open Mobile Alliance™ (OMA™) DRM version 1.0, as well as other open DRM implementations and is compatible with Web and WAP servers worldwide. SecureMSM software is integrated into select Qualcomm MSM® chipset solutions.
