Perl Module to check OMA DRA support for a mobile device

Last Month in one of articles, I covered a topic on how to get the screen size of a mobile device, someone is wondering about how to check the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Digital Rights Management (DRM) support.

To check Forward-Lock, you need to ensure that the following content-type is accepted by the device:

  • application/vnd.oma.drm.message

To check Combined Delivery, you need to ensure that the following content-type is accepted by the device:

  • application/vnd.oma.drm.message
  • application/vnd.oma.drm.rights+xml

To check Separate Delivery, you need to ensure that the following content-type is accepted by the device:

  • application/vnd.oma.drm.rights+xml
  • application/vnd.oma.drm.rights+wbxml
  • application/vnd.oma.drm.content

One more thing is that the device may support (for example) Combined Delivery DRM, but you may not be able to use that in MMS. Thus, further check on “MmsCcppAccept” tag of the User Agent Profile (UAProf) to ensure that it is supported.

Some may wonder why I don’t just check the “DrmClass” tag instead. Well, you can, however, during my investigation, I found out that some mobile phone manufacturers do not include this in the UAProf. Thus, it is much safer to check the DRM’s content-types instead.

I have further modified the previous Mobile::UserAgentProfile library and include this checking into that. I have also make changes to the method calling so that I can hold the profile in memory rather than load the profile from file every time I need to check on the UAProf.

INSTALL

To install, do the following:

perl Makefile.PL
make
make install
