Domain Lock : Locking Media To A Web Site

Domain Lock prevents unauthorized use on other domains

Domain Lock is the process of ensuring that web content can only be displayed from a set domain. Domain Lock was first developed in 1998 by ArtistScope for its image encryption solutions, which even to this day remain unparalleled.

How Domain Lock works

Usually, the web content is encrypted to include a function for comparing the site that is displaying the content to the site that is mentioned in the function's scripting. If there is a match then the content is displayed normally. Otherwise, the content is protected by not displaying or redirecting the user to another page.

How effective is Domain Lock?

Domain Lock is the ideal solution for ensuring that content removed/copied from a website can only be viewable from a web page on that web site. Thus, preventing saved or copied versions from being used/viewed inappropriately.

How secure is Domain Lock?

Domain-locking is only as secure as the content itself, and if that content is not encoded or encrypted then the domain lock function can be easily modified or removed. For example, if the content is JavaScript that has been encoded, then it will be the easiest to decode and manipulate.

If the content is Flash (.swf) then it needs to be encrypted and will only be as secure as the Flash encryption, which by today's standards is NOT secure at all. Flash was never designed to be secure, but rather it was designed to be a popular web page presentation tool.

Why our Domain Lock is truly secure

Secure Image Pro was specially-designed to copy protect images on web pages. Then Domain Lock was created to ensure that those images could only be displayed on the nominated website. With our encrypted images, a key is embedded into the image and is not stored in an external file that can be downloaded or otherwise be obtained easily.

ArtistScope encrypted images can only be decrypted by our ActiveX and/or Java applets, depending on the user's platform. These are 1,000 times more secure than JavaScript and Flash encoding. In fact there is no risk at all because decompiling will not yield an algorithm that can be used even with the computer resources of NASA. Only if the password is known can it be used.

Encrypted images are most secure while stored on the web server and are protected from distribution even from your employees, webmaster and staff, all of whom may have access to the server.

Domain Lock software

Software that utilizes the most effective domain lock solutions includes Secure Image Pro, which is for general image encryption and is supported across all platforms, along with CopySafe Web which is the most secure copy protection solution for all web content.
