The Crisis of Standardizing DRM: The Case of W3C Encrypted Media Extensions [chapter]

Harry Halpin
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The process of standardizing DRM via the W3C Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) Recommendation has caused a crisis for W3C and potentially other open standards organizations.  ...  The claims of both sides are tested via technical analysis and quantitative analysis of participation in the Working Group.  ...  Although no known DRM case has involved EME and browser-based DRM, it is reasonable to hypothesize that security audits by researchers on browser-based DRM systems will suffer a "chilling effect" due to  ...
