We present an anti-pirate revocation scheme for broadcast encryption systems (e.g., pay TV), in which the data is encrypted to ensure payment by users. In the systems we consider, decryption of keys is done on smartcards and key management is done in-band. Our starting point is a scheme of Naor and Pinkas. Their basic scheme uses secret sharing to remove up(More)
We present a novel way to implement the secret-sharing-based family of revocation schemes of Naor and Pinkas [2003]. The basic scheme of [Naor and Pinkas 2000] uses Shamir's polynomial secret-sharing to revoke up to <i>r</i> users, where <i>r</i> is the degree of the secret-sharing polynomial, and it is information theoretically secure against coalitions of(More)
