By enabling this option on your player, you have the ability to Encrypt the entire Storage partition in order for your content to be safe.
If someone steals your Player, they won’t be able to access any of your media or information outside your network. That includes files, passwords, and usernames.
You can find this feature in the Advanced Settings, under the Security tab.
1) Encrypting player storage
By enabling this option, the player will encrypt the entire Storage partition.
Even if someone removes the SD card, he will not be able to extract any content stored on that partition.
By clicking the Save button, you will see the below image on your TV screen.
After this process is complete the storage partition on your player will be encrypted.
Internet Access Required
If the player does not have access over the internet, you will see the below error message .
When booting the player needs to connect to our server in order to retrieve the key and decrypt the encrypted partition.
2) Store Encryption key locally
By enabling this option, the player will store the key locally and will be able to decrypt the encrypted partition even when it is offline.
If you store the key on the Player, it will be able to work offline. A determined engineer may be able to extract the key and decrypt your data.
3) Whitelist IP addresses for Key retrieval
If you have enabled the option to store the Encryption key locally, you cannot use the Whitelist option. Only one decryption method can be active each time.
With this option, you can specify your public IPs (or subnets). Players will not get the Encryption Key from our platform if they connect from other networks, and you will get an email warning.
If the player boots on a different network than the ones that you have whitelisted, the below message will be displayed on the TV screen.
Also, the player will display as offline in your account until you boot the specific player on one of your Whitelisted networks.
