Your assertion should be largely correct. Because MStar's core business is CE STBs and DTVs, DRM / conditional_access / content_protection are critical requirements of its products.

Actually forgive my word choices. I think I sound unnecessary rude on the previous message. And I might be wrong myself.

You completely misunderstand what the CryptoFirewall does -_-. It's not a network firewall intend to protect your privacy. It has nothing do with virus invading your microwave. This is a DRM-like technology meant to prevent you from stealing free IPTV.

With the coming demand of smart appliances and wired home, security is no doubt a crucial subject. I am sure no one is looking forward to household appliance being hacked. Nor can we live with a virus invaded microwave oven. Firewall is a complicated piece of IT equipment. What is required to get average Joe be able to re-configure a firewall to fit his need? Or firewall configuration will be done automatically and intelligently.
