Five electronics giants announced Dec. 20 that they have reached an agreement in principle to collaborate on new content protection technology for flash memory cards such as SD Cards and various storage devices.
Under the "Next Generation Secure Memory Initiative," Panasonic Corp., Samsung Electronics Co., SanDisk Corp., Sony Corp. and Toshiba Corp. will start preparing for licensing and promotion of HD (high-definition)-capable security for SD Cards and embedded memory for use in advanced consumer applications such as tablets and smartphones.
This content protection solution will be sufficiently robust to protect HD content. A high level of content security will be realized through the use of the initiative's technologies, including ID (identification) technology for flash memory and robust copy protection based on public key infrastructure.
