Abstract

In this paper, we describe various concepts how Web content can be published in a way so that copies cannot be illegally distributed. The required access control mechanisms are implemented using well-known cryptographic algorithms. A modified Web browser decrypts the content on-the-fly so that it is impossible for unauthorized users to copy and distribute the presented multimedia content.
