Netflix Taps Intel Software to Protect Viewer Privacy – Intel Chip Chat – Episode 493
In this Intel Chip Chat audio podcast with Allyson Klein: Scott Long, Senior Software Engineer at Netflix, and Jonathan Stern, Storage Software Applications Engineer at Intel, join us live from Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco to discuss Netflix’ work with Intel to protect viewer privacy. Netflix relies on Intel technologies to deliver more than 35 terabits of video each second to its more than 83 million worldwide customers. Long and Stern talk about the challenge of adding end-to-end encryption to Netflix’s vast content delivery network. While the rule of thumb in video delivery is that adding encryption typically doubles computational requirements, Long notes that the Intel Intelligent Storage Acceleration Library (Intel ISA-L) enabled Netflix to add encryption to its CDN with only a 20-30% increase in computational overhead.
