Efficient Multi-dimensional Key Management in Broadcast Services
The prevalent nature of Internet makes it a well suitable medium for many new types of services such as location-based services and streaming content. Subscribers to such services normally receive encrypted content and can obtain access to it if they possess the corresponding decryption key. Furthermore, in location-based services a subscription is normally granted to a geographic area specified by user-specific coordinates (x1, x2), (y1, y2) and custom time interval (t1, t2). Similarly, subscriptions to other services also involve multiple dimensions. The problem of key management is then to assign keys to each point on a D-dimensional grid and to subscribers in such a way as to permit all users to obtain access only to the resources in their subscriptions and minimize the associated overhead. In this work, we develop a novel key management scheme for multi-dimensional subscriptions that both outperforms existing solutions and supports a richer set of access privileges than existing s...
