ClearPlay Authentication Components
Provides users with a quick, secure way to identify themselves as PayTV subscribers on any programmer portal. All screens are built, hosted and managed by Clearleap.
- Fully hosted, custom branded log-in modules and sign-up screens
- Standalone system = no additional web development and integrations with existing online identity systems are not required but still supported
- Embedded modules auto-launch from programmer websites, granting instant access
The Identity and Access Management system contains all business logic to validate and grant access to individual episodes, live TV and movies -through their subscriptions. No billing system integration is required.
- Secure handshake passes user credentials through industry-standard, SAML-based (Secure Authentication Markup Language) mediation service
- Detection and prevention of fraud and denial of service (DOS) attacks
- Billing proxy authenticates and authorizes access based on service tier
A single integration with ClearPlay Authentication creates a ‘one-to-many’ gateway that enables PayTV service providers to grant access to premium programming on any content provider website or app.
- Clearleap manages end-to-end ‘turn-up’ with all programmers
- Layered, plug-in architecture connects with Programmer’s proprietary authorization system – or proxy service (e.g. Adobe Pass)
