MPEG-FAQ 4.1: What is "SECMPEG" ?
What is "SECMPEG" ?
SECMPEG is first a newly defined stream, that ensures the service
of confidentiality and integrity for a MPEG-I-video-stream. 'Cause
of the amount of multimedia-data it is NOT possible to use the same
crypto- or checking-techniques for multimedia-data then for normal
files or streams.
Therefore we defined a new stream, containing additional security
information. We tested and filtered the MPEG-I-stream to ensure that
only important and relevant data is encrypted or checked. The newly
desinged methods are not proofed but quite good tested. We can't be
sure so far, if these method really do what they are designed for.
It is second a tool, that can insert and delete the confidentiality
and integrity data into/from a MPEG-I-stream.
If you get any results to proof our methods, we hope to here from you !
More information is available from te authors, like some PostScript-
files, pictures and graphs.
How does it compile ?
The program already compiles under
- SunOS 4.1.x using cc or gcc
- SunOS 5.0 using cc or gcc
- Solaris 2.1 using cc or gcc
- INTERACTIVE Unix 2.2.1 using cc or gcc
- Linux using gcc
- MS-DOS using gcc or Borland C 2.0 (tcc),
the dos-port shoulb be included as
executable in the archive
You need a compiler, that understands ANSI-C so far, but the rest is
straight forward C, so it should compile nearly everywhere.
