TI Adds Over-the-Air Security for its OMAP Platform

Texas Instruments is demonstrating its "M-Shield" security framework on its OMAP platform at 3GSM World Congress. TI has collaborated with Vodafone to showcase how operators can securely deploy and upgrade key applications, such as DRM agents to phones over-the-air (OTA), making it possible for an installed-base of users to upgrade the capabilities of their handsets and purchase protected multimedia content transparently.

TI said this over-the-air M-Shield will reduce operators' operational costs, improve time-to- market of new services deployment, while at the same time preventing the risk of installing unwanted applications and malicious software.
