The Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV consortium aims to define a standardized way on how content from so-called entertainment providers (e.g. broadcast stations, online media providers) is delivered on connected TVs. Starting as a Pan-European effort, the HbbTV consortium wants to create a globally adopted standard for hybrid entertainment services. Especially within the so-called Declarative Application Environment (DAE) – the HbbTV browser – another standard for connected TVs is being adopted: The Open IPTV Forum standard for Internet protocol TVs (IPTV). This standard seems to cover the device-specific part for Internet functionality.
This new standard in the entertainment industry is currently rolled out in an increasing number of countries in- and outside of Europe. Besides concerns about privacy, this technology also raises concerns about security. Possible attack vectors and possible mitigations are introduced in this presentation.
