Full Title: A Practical Guide to Securing SMPTE ST 2110 Systems and What Standards and Related Organizations are Doing to Help

Securing SMPTE ST 2110 systems is becoming an important issue. Using SMPTE ST 2110 adds new ways that your facility can be attacked. For example, an attacker could disable your SMPTE ST 2059/PTP infrastructure, crippling your facility. Tackling the entire topic of security may seem like a daunting challenge. Many users and equipment vendors don’t know where to start.

To assist users and vendors, standards and related organizations such as SMPTE, the Joint Taskforce on Networked Media (JT-NM), the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) are working on specific parts of the security challenge. They are developing practical and actionable solutions. While these solutions don’t address all aspects of security, they are a good starting point to get the industry moving in the right direction.

This presentation will summarize the ongoing work in different standards and related organizations, and provide practical and actionable solutions for securing SMPTE ST 2110 systems. Because of its criticality, specific focus will be on the SMPTE ST 2059/PTP infrastructure.
