The advancing of this technology is providing consumer with an easy access to Internet anywhere to receive services. One of the services that is attracting user in these days is IPTV services. IPTV is known as Internet Protocol TV that is capable of delivering a high quality of multimedia such as data, voice, and video to consumer homes through wired set-top box (STB). But with the advancing of mobile devices technology, users would want to receive their services through mobile devices at home or outside. However, the use of wireless environment has many risks and weaknesses when you compared it to existing wire networks. For instant, in wireless environment, mobile devices have vulnerabilities such as denial-of-service attack (DoS attack), man-in-middle attack, replay attack, and so on. Therefore consumer security and privacy are essential security issue as well as protecting digital content when users connect to wireless environment. Therefore, a secure migration of IPTV services from a set-top box (STB) to mobile devices at home or outside for pay per view video mechanism is proposed in this paper.
