The presentation will cover reverse engineering a satellite based IP content delivery system. These systems are generally used for moving digital media (such as movies, video on demand) but also can be used for digital signage and any other type of files. The presentation will touch on all aspects of reverse engineering from satellite reception, packet analysis, forward error correction reverse engineering (along with an explanation of the math), to the difficulty dealing with the extremely constant high bitrates on an off the shelf linux PC. The end result of the entire reverse engineering project was a linux based software client that has similar features as the commercial version based solely on an analysis of the protocol and incoming data.
