The 2016 DRM Deployment Guide

To successfully deploy a DRM solution for digital media, there are 3 components of the DRM system that must be addressed. First and foremost, you need to lock your content with an encryption key using a packaging solution to encrypt content in the “flavors” and locations you need it done. Second, you need a platform to deliver your license keys to unlock your content after authenticating the key requests. Third, you need a mechanism to enforce the digital rights to your content, such as how long can a user play the content and where and on what devices. While there are other facets like stats, reports, geo-fencing, flavors, and formats, the three I described above are the focus of successful DRM deployments.
