New documents published since the Q1 2024 meeting include:

  • SVTA5056: OTT Streaming Security Checklist. This document provides an end-to-end security checklist that an OTT service provider, technology vendor, or service developer can reference as they seek to improve content protection on OTT streaming services.
  • Open Caching Configuration Interface. This is a multi-part set of documents defining the metadata model and APIs for Content Providers, CDNs, Open Caching System providers, and ISPs to publish and retrieve configuration metadata for content caching and delivery.
