To continue with the promise of connectivity of its products via the Internet of Things (IoT), Samsung is focused on developing products for home and personal use with the highest standards of quality and safety.
reason, the research and development team of the Visual Display division of Samsung (VD), in addition to the best materials such as Quantum Dot for a real 4K UHD image and 100% color volume, the Q-engine, to the best smart platform in the QLED and Premium UHD line is constantly working to ensure that users' personal data are protected when they are connected to the internet from their Smart TVs.
User safety, a priority 19659002] As a bank that uses multiple security levels (cameras, safes and private security guards) to protect your valuables, Samsung Smart TV's three security stages in the moment of manufacture: platform, application and hardware.
In fact, Samsung is the first manufacturer in the world to have been certified for two consecutive years according to the International Security Standard Common Criteria (CC), organizations that provide secure systems for worldwide computer use.
1. Registration on the platform
Important information because the account and password of the user are encrypted before storage. Then, a standardized encryption process is implemented to protect the data when communicating with remote servers to prevent attackers from stealing your data. The information is therefore encrypted so that third parties do not intercept or change data; in turn, the possibility of unauthorized access to user information is eliminated.
With the security technology of the platform, the Smart TV services operate in a secure way: they block unauthorized codes to access the TV and they create vulnerable points within the platform. In addition, Samsung Smart TV's use the secure virtual keyboard and the "Secure keypad" numeric keypad to protect users' personal data, such as credit card numbers and passwords.
This phase blocks the sites of phishing on the web of access to devices and detects malicious code infections. Similarly, the browser has a security feature that creates a pop-up alert when the user clicks on suspicious websites. By asking the user to continue or to refuse the pop-up window, personal information is prevented from being filtered by phishing hidden or malicious websites.
To detect and prevent malicious software (malware) being attempted to be introduced into the television system, the devices use the anti-malware vaccine engine that controls, analyzes and prevents information about malware. In addition, network security blocks harmful external attacks that can penetrate user networks.
To provide even more protection, Samsung integrated the enhanced security application "McAfee Security for TV" into its smart TVs, which Once Active, monitors the malicious software on the network for maximum peace of mind.
Finally, in the hardware security phase, the chip-TV architecture prevents data leakage by separating the physical space in the hardware so that the central software works. In this sense, Samsung TVs make use of the Tizen operating system developed by the brand and, together with the solid base on the hardware level, guarantee the stability of the system and TV applications.
Samsung understands that security and trust is fundamental to the use of smart televisions and that trust depends on increasingly secure connections.
