Managing Your Kleptographic Subscription Plan

George Teseleanu

Abstract

In the classical kleptographic business models, the manufacturer of a device $D$ is paid either in advance or in installments by a malicious entity to backdoor $D$. Unfortunately, these models have an inherent high risk for the manufacturer. This translates in high costs for clients. To address this issue, we introduce a subscription based business model and tackle some of the technical difficulties that arise.
