Digital media distribution systems must protect the confidentiality and integrity of content and ensure its authenticity, without introducing excessive overhead. Of- ten, it is desirable to sacrifice some degree of cryptographic security for improved performance. In this project, we have implemented a secure streaming server for the Android platform. We consider various encryption strategies for streaming video and analyze the tradeoff between security and efficiency.
