Website Protection and Secure Web Browser The ArtistScope Site Protection System (ASPS) is a two-part solution that
provides the most secure web-viewing environment possible. Nothing is
left unprotected to copy or exploit with the ASPS filter running server
side to deliver encrypted content to the ASPS Web Reader on the user's
computer. ASPS provides the best solution for copy protecting all web
The ASPS Web Reader is a secure browser used to view ASPS protected content.
Visitors to sites using ASPS will automatically switch back and forth
between their browser of choice and Web Reader depending on whether they
are viewing ASPS content or normal web pages.
- Prevents download and save of web pages, html and their content.
- Prevents Print Screen , screen capture and screen recording.
- Prevents media and image downloaders from obtaining links.
- Prevents all data leakage and protects database records.
- Protects all web page media including Flash, PDF and video.
- Delivers all web requests and responses using the strongest encryption.
- Supports all web applications, scripting languages and SSL.
- Supports easy integration with any third party CSS or DRM solution.
- No special treatment required for any media (no encryption required).
ASPS will provide the most secure copy protection imaginable, securing
any media, data and links that can be displayed on your web pages. Whether
ASPS will allow the server to assemble your web page on the fly, then
encrypt it for delivery in such a way that only the ASPS Web Reader can
Why use the ArtistScope Site Protection System (ASPS)?
Today, we have numerous brands of web browsers and most of them are clones
of either Internet Explorer or Mozilla and are designed with the same
goal in mind that is to become the most popular browser. To enhance that
popularity, their makers continually add options to enable users to easily
search, find and download all types of media regardless of copyright or
restrictions imposed by authors.
Webmasters and designers wanting to protect web content need to employ
robust solutions for copy protection. However, this can be quite impossible
to guarantee protection because they are at the mercy of web browsers
that allow the addition of add-ons as aids in piracy and other means to
disable features and plugins utilized by site owners. The advent of ArtistScope?s
secure web browser provides you with an alternative to use if you want
to protect your site's content. The ASPS Web Reader overcomes all of these
problems and to date, there is nothing else in the world like it.
What is the ASPS Web Reader?
The ASPS Web Reader is a complete web browser. It is not a shell or skin
wrapped around your default web browser. Consequently it is not governed
by your default browser settings and nothing can be disabled without preventing
the ASPS Web Reader to run and function as intended. For the technically
minded its core is similar to the Chrome and Safari web browser, but it
is most definitely a separate entity that has been rebuilt from the ground
up to ensure that it cannot be exploited.
How Does ASPS Compare To Other Solutions?
Frankly, there is no other web browser that can offer comparable copy
protection for web content. Yes, there are browsers that are designed
for web exams that offer some user restrictions but they cannot provide
protection from all methods of copy. There are also some web browser clones,
(skinned versions of IE) that claim to protect web content and while they
may hamper the use of Print Screen and other hotkeys, their protection
from screen capture software relies on a list of known programs. Anyone
using a new application or renaming the screen capture executable can
easily exploit such deceptive protection. Nor do browser clones provide
any protection for media that is downloaded. All browsers store everything
that they download in a temporary internet folder (cache) and most modern
video- and image-grab software retrieves media from that browser cache.
In contrast, the ASPS Web Reader is designed to leave no avenue for exploit.
The CopySafe Web plugin can provide secure copy protection from all screen
capture and screen recording software and it is supported in all popular
Windows web browsers. But as an add-on to a generic web browser it is
at the mercy of those browser designers who are more interested in being
popular with the masses by exposing web content rather than protecting
it. Hence, the need for the ASPS Web Reader which is a complete web browser
that is specially designed throughout to prevent all exploits and has
a built-in mechanism as an integral component to prevent screen capture.
How ASPS works How Does ASPS Work?
ASPS delivers web content from the server direct to the web browser in
an encrypted format that only the ASPS Web Reader can decode. The content
on the server does not need to be encrypted and there is no double-handling
required to prepare any web content for delivery via ASPS. This means
that anything delivered from a website, including database records, media
and web pages created on the fly using absolutely any programming language,
will most securely be delivered from server to the user's web reader without
any opportunity of copy, duplication or retrieval.
Websites can contain both protected and public content (for search engines
and casual visitors) without any segregation. Any pages, which can be
normal html pages, that you want restricted for use by the ASPS Web Reader
only need to include an extra meta-tag. When that tag is detected by the
server it will be delivered in encrypted form, and only the ASPS Web Reader
will be able to decode that page and display it. All other web browsers
and devices will receive a legible error message, and even if they try
to spoof the system, all they will get is an encrypted blob that will
take NASA a month of Sundays to decrypt.
Launching From Normal Web Browser To ASPS Web Reader?
Most sites, even those that have protected or restricted content, provide
a doorway for casual visitors and fodder for search engines. And it doesn't
need to be any different even with ASPS content that requires running
a different web browser. From normal web pages you can provide a launch
button that starts up the ASPS Web Reader and loads the designated start
page. ASPS can be opened from any popular web browser as the launch plugins
are included in the Web Reader installation. If the ASPS Web Reader is
installed it can be launched from your web page. Otherwise the visitor
will be provided the download link with further instructions.
ASPS web browser integrity ASPS Web Reader Integrity
The ASPS Web Reader can explore your web site and media just like any
other web browser, except that nothing can be copied or saved in any way,
unless you specifically allow it. With the ASPS Web Reader your web security
is no longer dependent on third-party plugins; nor is it dependent on
limitations imposed by changes to system security policy because the components
that provide the security for your content are an integral part of the
ASPS browser core. So if the Web Reader is tampered with in any way, then
it will not run and your web content will not be downloaded or displayed...
a more secure scenario can never exist.
ASPS Web Reader Web Performance
First point to realize is that of all the web browsers available today,
they all have one thing in common and that is "false advertising". They
all claim to be superior, faster and more secure, but overall there is
little difference. They all depend on errors and exploits that are developed
as time goes by and can creep into updates. Otherwise, they are all secure.
As for internet speed, they are all the same and what a lot of people
don't realize is that the thing that affects it is how actually how busy
the connection is on both ends of the user's internet connection and the
web server at the other end. Apart from methods of caching DNS requests
and forcing the retention of cache, there is not much that can be done
for speed without sacrificing security checks.
Otherwise users will find that the ASPS Web Reader is comparable to every
other web browser in technology, performance and media support, except
for one thing, which is the total absence of cache. The ASPS Web Reader
stores downloads in memory so that nothing can be retrieved from cache.
Consequently, revisiting pages and media that may already have been downloaded
will not be quicker.
