Buzzword Compliance at SMPTE/NAB/CinemaCon

There are a couple of concepts in the security world that became took some apparent relavence this last few weeks as engineers from all over got together to share their recent discoveries and show their wares. The first is what is known as Schneier’s Law: 

Anyone, from the most clueless amateur to the best cryptographer, can create an algorithm that he himself can’t break. It’s not even hard. What is hard is creating an algorithm that no one else can break, even after years of analysis. And the only way to prove that is to subject the algorithm to years of analysis by the best cryptographers around.

Schneier on Security: “Schneier’s Law”

The other principle is discussed on Schneier’s and other security sites and is called Security by Obscurity. In the security world these quickly turn the conversation to the topic of open and closed source software. And this is the subject of the Buzzword Compliance Award for 2013.

BSPR – Ultimate Acronym or Cloud Guarantee?

We don’t do press releases here at DCinemaTools. There are other places who do it so much better then we ever could. But BSPR, that seems like something we could get behind. Alas, it means something else, and the EU are all over it. 

Binding Safe Processor Rules (BSPR) – Well explained at: New EU directive to feature cloud ‘bridge’ | IT PRO. I might otherwise be called, leveling the playing field toward quality.

Security: Connect the Dots–Ongoing

The twin stars around which digital cinema revolves are quality and security. The first allows some leniency; for example, 3D cinema movie quality is only close to the specification required of 2D movies. But security is meant to be multi-layered and well beyond ‘good enough’. From lens to lens, the expectation is that each player will do their part to contribute to a secure whole.

Fortunately, such security is part of a general industry effort that constantly looks for and responds to problems. Unfortunately, there is a lot of nuance that require a professional eye to spot trends. In a field full of artists on very tight schedules and increasingly tight budgets, the art of security can take a lower priority if the ramifications are not known.
