Interoperability between systems for secure delivery of content (audio and video) over the Internet or via digital television broadcasting is still hampered by the lack of interoperability among proprietary content protection systems. The OPIMA (Open Platform Initiative for Multimedia Access) specification offers a generic solution for multimedia terminals, in which the end-user's terminal is adapted to a content protection system by downloading a corresponding plug-in. This paper describes the OPIMA solution and shows how it can be applied.
