JPSEC Registration Authority (RA)

The flexibility of the JPSEC specification is accomplished through the use of both the user defined tools and the Registration Authority Tools. Any organization recognized by their National Bodies can submit new technologies they would like included in the JPSEC reference list. Tools are specified by their marker in the codestream, when an unknown marker is found a connection to the JPSEC RA is established to retrieve the registered information about the tool.

Applications for registration of new JPSEC tools shall be published by the JPSEC RA. The JPSEC RA shall provide tutorial assistance in preparing applications and forms for the following:

  • Registration Application
  • Request for Update
  • Notification of Assignment or Update
  • Rejection of Application

All forms shall include the name and address of the applicant organization, along with the name, title, postal/e-mail address, telephone/facsimile number of a contact person in the organization. Forms for Registration Application and Request for Update shall also include these mandatory items:

  • JPSEC tool name
  • Descriptive technical abstract
  • Descriptive overview of the tool
  • Conditional Access
  • Registered Content Identifier
  • Secure Scalable Streaming and Secure Transcoding

These optional items may also be present:

  • Type of JPSEC tool
  • Operational example use case description
  • Parameters syntax specification
  • Guidelines for optimum usage
  • IPR status
  • IPR conditions for use
  • Restrictions of use
  • Information for downloads of implementation
  • Additional comments, motivation, references, etc.
  • Requirements for confidentiality of selected application entries
  • Requested length of time for tool registration

When a tool is approved for entrance into the JPSEC registry the JPSEC RA assigns a unique ID that will be used in the codestream to signal the use of this tool. When this ID is found in the codestream the needed information will be retrieved from the JPSEC RA. Each tool entry in the register shall contain:

  • The assigned ID
  • Name of initial applicant
  • address of initial applicant
  • Date of original assignment
  • Date of last transfer of assignment, if allowed *
  • Name of current owner *
  • Address of current owner *
  • name, title, postal/e-mail address, telephone/facsimile number of a contact person in the organization *
  • Date of last update *
  • Optional information provided by applicant *
  • Approval information *

NOTE: items marked with a “*” can be updated
