This integration type is responsible for providing on-demand information to client applications (through Accedo One Core) required to acquire decryption tokens for playback of a specific Content item.

Token acquisition

When a client application attempts to playback a Content item, it will request all the information it needs for playback from Accedo One Core delivery API. As part of that request flow, Accedo One performs entitlement and other security checks as well as identifies if the content item is marked as DRM protected (by having playbackInfo.videoStreams.*.drmInfo.*.type set to any known value).

In case the DRM protection setting is set, Accedo One Core will perform call(s) to the DRM Token provider integration RPC method DRMTokenService.GenerateToken with end-user device information, the content object type and identifier and the requested DRM type.

Fulfilling this request and responding with information defined for the supported DRM types will allow clients to immediately communicate with the DRM License service and acquire a decryption key specific to the requested piece of content.

Development with IDK

To start IDK in DRM mode, simply run idk up drm.


drm is an alias of video-catalog and therefore you can use idk up video-catalog instead.

$ idk up drm
