Abstract: This paper presents an architecture for a distributed conditional access system with multiple service providers. The standard XML digital signature and XML encryption techniques are applied to ensure secure distribution of audio, video, image and data on the web. The proposed approach seamlessly integrates the payment transactions with content delivery in a secure environment.
