We propose a key assignment scheme and applying it to control hierarchical access to multimedia content. By introducing a modified hash chain, the proposed scheme manages one key composed of a single segment. The managed key is not distributed to any users, providing security against key leakage. Collusion attacks are prevented by the order of key assignment. Our scheme also reduces the number of hash calculations. Analysis of performance demonstrated this scheme is valid.
