Defining TVE Home-Based Authentication (HBA) Use Cases and Requirements

About This Document

The OATC Home-based Authentication (HBA) Recommended Practice document examines the various use cases involved in HBA implementations. The document enumerates the trivial to complex scenarios facing distributors, while stopping short of specific solution details. The goal of the document is to aid distributors in clearly identifying their situation and providing recommendations on multiple paths forward. The document considers the complications added to basic HBA by features such as sub-accounts and parental controls, and offers varied approaches based on the respective capabilities of content providers and distributors. With HBA’s potential to remove impediments to user access of TV Everywhere content, this document strives to evangelize the concept and aid the development process.
