The Next Generation For Secure Image Technology


Since 1998 ArtistScope’s image encryption technology has provided the only feasible solution for displaying secure images on web pages. By utilizing Java security applets to cater for decrypt images in memory as the web page loads, ArtistScope’s image encryption for the web has been unsurpassed. In fact even today there are no comparable solutions.

As the web browser makers try to tighten security in the “bells and whistles” features that they originally introduced to attract their users, and especially in the case of Microsoft paying out on Sun because they sued them for trying to brand Java technology as their own, Java is no longer bundled with Windows. Now everyone has to download and install Java separately and suffer delays every time they first run Java.

So for Windows users ArtistScope image encryption can now be delivered by ActiveX. ActiveX is native to Windows and the Internet Explorer web browser so there are no extra resources required and no delay in load times. ArtistScope’s new ActiveX image viewer is fully compatible with images previously encrypted for the Java security applets and in fact are more efficient because there is no delay to initialize Java and because the decryption is managed in memory the images cannot be found in cache at all.

One of the main benefits of using encrypted images is that the images stored on the client’s web site are completely secure. They are safe from company staff and also safe from persons who may have access to the web server such as hosting staff and web masters.

The potential retrieval of media from the web browser’s cache has always been a concern. In earlier day browsers cached files were not that accessible and even when located could not be opened directly. But later day browsers have changed that and as usual made securing such files even more difficult by exposing them without any limitations.

The images encrypted by ArtistScope software have always been secure regardless of how accessible the cache may be because they are still in their encrypted form and cannot be displayed except from the java security applet which of course is domain locked to the client’s web site. And now it is even much more secure because the encrypted images downloaded and decrypted by the new ActiveX viewer cannot be found anywhere because the whole decryption and display process remains in the end user’s computer memory.

ArtistScope’s new image technology is now included in the renown CopySafe Web technology which provides unsurpassed copy protection for web pages and images used on the Internet. Copysafe Web version 4.0 features include:

- Lightning fast decryption on load to the web page
- Printscreen and screen capture protection for all Windows browsers
- Page reload and roaming delivered instantly from cache
- Domain lock of encrypted images to the client’s web page online
- Encrypted images cannot be found in cache
- Variable display styles including slideshow and watermarking
- Command line operation available for single or batch processing

CopySafe Web version 4.0 can also be operated in command line mode, run from the console, from .bat files or by using a DLL interface for online operation, enabling it to be used in conjunction with online shopping carts and image uploaders for site members.
