This paper explains Bridge Layer, which the authors are proposing for the aim to realize liberated association between an existing content protect mechanism (CP) and a widely applicable payment and rights-management service (CHS).

While the market strongly requires CHS to be of general purpose, its functionality currently tends to be embedded in a respective CP for security reasons.

This is regarded as a negative factor, which blocks the spread of the digital content distribution.

Bridge Layer could solve the recognized problems regarding the security of the association between CP and CHS.
