Digital Publishing has reinvented the modern-day publishing needs and hence the process with the implementation of eBook encryption software to create, maintain and distribute their eBooks, with the added advantage of reaching to a wider audience in a cost effective manner.
eBook distribution on the flipside has its disadvantages too, primarily being, any user can share the eBooks (hence content) without the consent thus leading to copyright violation and revenue loss. The best solution to overcome this problem is to secure eBooks from duplication or unauthorised sharing and use it with the implementation of encryption software, thus eliminating copyright issues too.
Encryption prevents unauthorised access to the digital content that is shared over the internet in the form of eBooks. Digital Publishers insist on encrypting their eBooks as encryption software is a technical solution that implements special computer code to prevent users/readers from copying/sharing the eBook.
Encryption not only limits the number of devices that a user can download their eBooks but also limits the lending facility of the eBooks so that the users cannot lend the eBook to anyone else, thus only leaving with the option to make a purchase.
Encryption Software typically comes and works at the following three levels:
a) Protects data in transit:
Takes shape when the eBooks are being sent over the internet or a network. Digital information between two endpoints becomes vulnerable and is hence prone to malware attacks. By implementing encryption software in eBooks, it encrypts the digital content by securing its integrity and validity thus retaining confidentiality.
b) Protects data saved at a place:
This could be eBooks on cloud or onsite servers.
c) Protects when digital content is transmitted by the publisher to their users/readers:
The encryption software protects the data via generating a user public key. The publisher shares the key to unlock the eBook when a reader makes a purchase of the eBook.
a) Increased Protection:
Encryption software adds extra layers of security to eBooks in all the above three levels as cited above including the hardware on which these eBooks are stored is encrypted, thus preventing any misuse.
b) Protects Intellectual Property Rights (IPR):
Digital Content is prone to cyberattacks. Encryption software helps to protect intellectual property rights without user consent. All the access details are made available within IPR so appropriate action can be taken if deemed necessary.
c) Increased Revenue:
Encryption software prevents unauthorised access to eBooks. Hence, eBooks have to be only purchased as the access is limited to a number of devices, thus enabling you to reap monetary benefits from your digital content.
Publishers with the implementation of eBook encryption software can retain complete control over the digital content. This includes viewers, other related information and also prevents duplication/sharing of the content without user consent.
With increasing sophisticated malware attacks, eBook encryption software protects to not steal the data saving loss of data, revenue and reputation. Encryption doesn’t leave eBooks vulnerable to exploitation.
