A Novel Digital Rights Management Scheme in P2P Networks
Abstract: P2P networking is a distributed application architecture that partitions tasks or workloads between peers. How to integrate P2P networks and DRM to offer a novel content distribution mode for digital media resources is a significant research project. In this paper, a novel DRM architecture in P2P Networks is proposed, three phases include content provide phase, content purchase phase and content access phase, are modeled, and key technologies are introduced. Finally analysis indicates that the proposed scheme has the characteristics of security, controllability and scalability.
