Overview

Installed at the headend, the FlexKey Encryptor is placed between the DVB IP Encapsulator (IPE) and the DVB Modulator. It receives an ASI transport stream from the IPE, encrypts DVB packets for selected PIDs and forwards the resulting transport stream out another ASI interface to the modulator. The user monitors and controls the FlexKey Encryptor with a Web-based GUI or Terminal Interface. Front panel LED indicators are also provided.

Using a sophisticated random number generation algorithm and passed onto an internal secure device for encryption, keys are encrypted using a security device which has an internal "secret", programmed at the factory. It must also be programmed into the security device of each receiver that wishes to decrypt the data on the network. The "secret" itself is also encrypted for highly secure operation.
