ASPS Web Site Protection
The ArtistScope Site Protection System (ASPS) is a two-part solution that provides the most secure web-viewing environment
on the planet. Nothing is left unprotected to copy or exploit with the ASPS server
filter delivering encrypted content to the
ArtisBrowser on the user's computer. In fact ASPS provides the
most secure web site content protection on the planet... secure from all exploit
including packet sniffers when SSL applied.
The ArtisBrowser is a secure browser used to view
ASPS protected content and supports almost all contemporary browser
features so that visitors can seamlessly navigate through normal and protected

How Does ASPS Work?
ASPS delivers web pages to the web browser in encrypted format that only the ArtisBrowser can decode. The content on the
web site does not need to be encrypted and there is no double-handling required to
prepare any web content for delivery via ASPS except for the inclusion of a HTML
tag to trigger the ASPS filter. This means that anything
delivered from a website, including database records, media and web pages
created on the fly, will most securely
be delivered from server to the user's web browser without any opportunity of
copy, duplication or exploit.
ASPS websites can contain a mixture of both protected and normal content (for search engines and
casual visitors) without any segregation. Any pages that you want protected 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 ArtisBrowser
will be able to decode that page and display it. Any 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
How Does ArtisBrowser
Compare To Other Browsers?
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
limitations but they cannot provide protection from all methods of copy
and with such robust integrity that when SSL is used not even packet sniffers
can be used to locate content or media. The ArtisBrowser is designed to leave no avenue for exploit.
All of the web browsers available today claim to be
superior, faster and more secure, but overall there is little difference.
However there is one notable difference between ArtisBrowser
and other browsers in caching. Caching stores HTML, images and media so that
subsequent visits to a page will load quicker, and while that may be useful on
news and other ad-infested pages, on copy protected sites the cache is a major
vulnerability where media grabbers and video recorders can retrieve data
directly. Consequently the
ArtisBrowser does not
cache at all.
Caching only helps with revisits to a page and frankly, in today's internet
environment, download speed is no longer an issue.
ASPS protection can be applied site wide, to specific folders or to individual web pages only, and the protection applied can vary on each page. For example, you can allow a visitor to print a receipt but not copy it, or to save selected files to disk but not copy the page.
ASPS does not employ DRM because most websites are already managed by membership
solutions provided by a CMS like Drupal, Joomla, Moodle or WordPress. If DRM is
required then the CMS should be modified and webmasters will be pleased to know
that the ArtisBrowser provides extra server variables that can be used to
identify each and every user, enabling them to enable access from specific
computers only if neeed.

ArtisBrowser & Copy Protection
ASPS and the
ArtisBrowser utilize the renowned CopySafe
windows service, as does
CopySafe Video and
ASPS Protected Web Content
ASPS will most securely copy protect all content and media embedded on your web
page, except PDF that can be viewed in Adobe Reader. The reason for that Is that
even if the PDF is embedded on the page, it will still open in Adobe Reader
which now provides all sorts of menu options for copy, save and print which
cannot be disabled. So for PDF the only secure solution is to use
CopySafe PDF for both desktop reading
and web page view. CopySafe PDF can be displayed in an ASPS site or used as a
ASPS System Requirements
First, you need to have a website on either the Internet or an Intranet. The next requirement is for you to have
Server Admin permissions to be able to install software server side, ie: a
dedicated or a virtual server (Windows or Linux).
ASPS Server Installation
To use ASPS, the filter software needs to be installed on the server for your website.
Installation is always performed by ArtistScope support team to ensure that the
license file matches the server ID and that filter version suits your server OS.
ASPS Site Integration
If your web site is custom coded your developer may be required to place the
trigger tags into the pages that you want to protect (usually the header
template). But if using one of the popular CMS like DNN, Drupal, Joomla, Moodle
or WordPress, ArtistScope can provide a Tag
Management add-on for your CMS.
Site admins using a CMS can edit their ASPS Tag Management settings from a
single page that will inject the ASPS tag plus meta-tags on the fly to pages
that they nominate by keyword or url. For more info, please see
ASPS Tag Management.
