Flex 4.6, Actionscript, RC4, Http Server, Video, Native Extensions, C
Developed an Actionscript video player with effective real time 128 bit secure encryption. The design leveraged a small 128 bit key tied to a validating hardware dongle to control encryption chunk size and order in a 64 bit encrypted videos, providing effective 128 bit security and 64 bit file size. This was to provide a secure video distribution channel for educational video products (initial target was South America). Project passed a technical review for a patent, but the patent was not pursued, possibly due to the social implications of restricted video tutorials in third world countries (my opinion). Project design consisted of two separate applications and included customized video components, an action-script based application integrated custom web server, Custom RC4 based real time encryption and decryption processes interacting with a 128 bit key, and a Native Extension written in C.
