About the case study

Protecting Intellectual Property Rights Through Digital Signatures - Hardware-based Authentication of End-to-End Processes from Production to Delivery

The following case study shows how Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) technology, an industry first solution, has a requirement to capture and share studio quality sound in a file that’s small enough to stream, without sacrificing sound quality. The challenge was to ensure the integrity of the artist’s music from the original source to the end listener.

Take a closer look at:

  • How a solution was applied that securely signed the music file to ensure cryptographically that what the listener hears is what the artist produced

  • How authentication is critical to MQA technology, which must work from studio to listener and how digital signatures are used for proof of integrity

  • How Utimaco HSMs were seamlessly deployed for the purpose of authenticating the end-to-end process of music recording.

The case study provides an in-depth account of how trusted authentication is applied to the download services of the music industry with Utimaco being at the forefront of enabling highest quality, next-generation entertainment.
