Mobile Digital Rights Management with the .NET Compact Framework
2005 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

The assignment of this master’s thesis has been to evaluate the feasibility of developing a Digital Rights Management (DRM) system for mobile software products and, if feasible, present a working design and prototype of such a system. The DRM system had to be based on the existing Lime software DRM system for desktop software products, designed using UML and run on the .NET Compact Framework. The work during the master’s thesis was done in a software engineering project. The project began with a research phase, giving the knowledge required to develop a DRM system for mobile software products. In order to be able to evaluate the feasibility of developing a DRM system for mobile software products, the newly acquired knowledge was used to execute a feasibility study. The study resulted in four deliverables: Project Plan, Requirements Specification, Time and Resource Plan and Software Quality Assurance Plan. The deliverables define the project, analyze the market, identify problems, determine requirements, provide a development plan and give quality guidelines. A decision to go ahead with the project and create a design and prototype of a DRM system for mobile software products running on Pocket PC devices, the Lime Mobile Pocket PC software DRM system, was taken when the feasibility study had been evaluated. Basing a DRM system for mobile software products on the Lime software DRM system proved to be a difficult task. There are many differences between a mobile device and a desktop computer. Furthermore, the available version of the Lime software DRM system was a rough prototype. In the end, the Lime Mobile Pocket PC software DRM system was designed to use the base of the Lime software DRM system but the high level functionality was re-designed from scratch. Due to the poor internet connectivity of mobile devices, the Lime Mobile Pocket PC software DRM system was designed to be dependent on desktop computers during licensing operations. In order to be truly mobile, the DRM system should be re-designed to be completely client-centric in the future if the internet connectivity of mobile devices increases. The implementation and testing of the Lime Mobile Pocket PC software DRM system prototype was a time-consuming task but the result was very satisfactory. The prototype is almost a product and could be introduced on the commercial market after going through acceptance testing.
