Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • [0001]
    This application is based on and claims priority from Korean Patent Application No. 10-2007-0005695 filed on Jan. 18, 2007, in the Korean Intellectual Property Office, and U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 60/846,105 filed on Sep. 21, 2006, in the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the disclosures of which are incorporated herein in their entirety by reference.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    1. Field of the Invention
  • [0003]
    Methods and apparatuses consistent with the present invention relate to an apparatus and method for providing domain information. More particularly, the present invention relates to an apparatus and method for providing information about a domain when a device intends to join the domain.
  • [0004]
    2. Description of the Related Art
  • [0005]
    CORAL is a technology for improving interoperability between digital rights management (DRM) technologies. The concept of a domain, which represents a logical set of multiple devices, is presented in CORAL A domain-management server, also referred to as a domain manager, manages such a domain. The domain-management server is also called a domain manager. The domain is described in detail in “Core Architecture V3.0” and “Ecosystem V1.0” of the CORAL specification.
  • [0006]
    The domain-management server manages domains so that each of the devices belongs to a domain according to rules, and content can be shared between devices belonging to the same domain.
  • [0007]
    The method involving a device joining a domain is described with reference to FIG. 1 as follows.
  • [0008]
    First, it is assumed that there is a first device 110 in domain A. If a second device 120 intends to join domain A, the second device 120 connects to a domain-management server 140, receives information about domain A from the domain-management server 140, and sets up the environment using the received information.
  • [0009]
    Information about domain A includes the type, function, and identification information of the device included in domain A, and can also include information about the domain-management server 140, such as the network address (e.g., a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) address) of the domain-management server 140 managing domain A.
  • [0010]
    Further, the domain-management server 140 can perform the authentication on the second device 120, and a substitute-authentication device 130 can separately exist within domain A. If there is a substitute-authentication device 130, information of domain A can include information of the substitute-authentication device 130 (e.g., the type, function and identification information of the device).
  • [0011]
    Likewise, according to the related art, in order for a device to join a domain, information about the domain, that is, domain information should be set up, and for this, the device should connect to a separate domain-management server and receive domain information.
  • [0012]
    For a user to connect to a domain-management server using a device, the user should directly input the address of the domain-management server using an input means attached in the device, or retrieve the stored address of the domain-management server.
  • [0013]
    If a device, such as a notebook computer or a personal computer, has a means for inputting letters, the domain-management server may be connected. However, if the device includes only a 4-way key or an inconvenient input means, it is difficult to connect to the domain-management server.
  • [0014]
    Further, because the device should have a wired or wireless communication function for connecting to the domain-management server, a device having no such function cannot join the domain.
  • [0015]
    Therefore, there is a need for a method where devices having an interface for connecting to a domain-management server that is difficult to join, or having no wired or wireless internet function, can join a domain.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0016]
    The present invention provides an apparatus and method for setting up domain information after receiving domain information directly transmitted from an existing device without separate communication with a domain-management server.
  • [0017]
    According to an aspect of the present invention, there is provided an apparatus for providing domain information, the apparatus including a storage module that stores domain information, a device-connection module that connects to a device intending to join a domain, and a control module that extracts domain information stored in the storage module, and provides the extracted domain information to the connected device through the device-connection module.
  • [0018]
    According to another aspect of the present invention, there is provided an apparatus for providing domain information, the apparatus including a storage module that stores domain information, a communication-interface module that communicates with a device intending to join a domain through a wired or wireless medium, and a control module that extracts domain information stored in the storage module, and transmits the extracted domain information through the communication-interface module to the device.
  • [0019]
    According to another aspect of the present invention, there is provided a method of providing domain information, the method including connecting to a device intending to join a domain, extracting domain information about the domain, and providing the extracted domain information to the connected device.
  • [0020]
    According to another aspect of the present invention, there is provided a method of providing domain information, the method including receiving a request for domain information about a domain from a device intending to join the domain through a wired or wireless medium, extracting the domain information according to the request, and transmitting the extracted domain information to the device through the wired or wireless medium.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF EXEMPLARY EMBODIMENTS OF THE INVENTION
  • [0027]
    Exemplary embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.
  • [0028]
    The present invention may be understood more readily by reference to the following detailed description of exemplary embodiments and the accompanying drawings. The present invention may, however, be embodied in many different forms and should not be construed as being limited to the exemplary embodiments set forth herein. Rather, these exemplary embodiments are provided to convey the concept of the invention to those skilled in the art, and the present invention will only be defined by the appended claims. Like reference numerals refer to like elements throughout the specification.
  • [0029]
    The exemplary embodiments are described hereinafter with reference to flowchart illustrations of user interfaces, methods, and computer program products. It will be understood that each block of the flowchart illustrations, and combinations of blocks in the flowchart illustrations, can be implemented by computer program instructions. These computer program instructions can be provided to a processor of a general purpose computer, special purpose computer, or other programmable data processing apparatus to produce a machine, such that the instructions, which are executed via the processor of the computer or other programmable data processing apparatus, create means for implementing the functions specified in the flowchart block or blocks.
  • [0030]
    These computer program instructions may also be stored in a computer usable or computer-readable memory that can direct a computer or other programmable data processing apparatus to function in a particular manner, such that the instructions stored in the computer usable or computer-readable memory produce an article of manufacture including instruction means that implement the function specified in the flowchart block or blocks.
  • [0031]
    The computer program instructions may also be loaded into a computer or other programmable data processing apparatus to cause a series of operational steps to be performed on the computer or other programmable apparatus to produce a computer implemented process such that the instructions that are executed on the computer or other programmable apparatus provide steps for implementing the functions specified in the flowchart block or blocks.
  • [0032]
    Additionally, each block of the flowchart illustrations may represent a module, segment, or portion of code, which comprises one or more executable instructions for implementing the specified logical function(s). It should also be noted that in some alternative implementations, the functions noted in the blocks may occur out of the order. For example but not by way of limitation, two blocks shown in succession may in fact be executed substantially concurrently or the blocks may sometimes be executed in reverse order.
  • [0033]
    FIG. 2 illustrates a system for providing domain information according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.
  • [0034]
    While a first device 210 and a second device 220 join a domain and operate, a user introduces a third device 230, and tries to replay a music file stored in the first device 210 using the third device 230. Further, the first device 210, the second device 220, and the third device 230 support a common communication protocol.
  • [0035]
    First, the third device 230 broadcasts a message requesting information of devices belonging to the current domain while informing of information about the third device 230, and each of the devices transmits a message including its information, for example, device-identification information or information of provided functions, to the third device 230 in response to the broadcast message. Likewise, a process where a device intending to join an arbitrary domain informs devices existing in the domain of its existence, and receives information of each of the existing devices in response is called a discovery process. The related art method can be used for the discovery process.
  • [0036]
    Through such a process, the third device 230 obtains information of devices belonging to a domain.
  • [0037]
    The third device 230 selects a device of devices belonging to the current domain, and sends a request for domain information. Here, the third device 230 has selected the first device 210. The user can directly select a device or the third device 230 can arbitrarily select a device.
  • [0038]
    In response to the request for domain-information, the first device 210 transmits its domain information to the third device 230, the third device 230 sets up the environment for operation within the domain using the transmitted domain information.
  • [0039]
    That is, the first device 210 that joined a domain provides domain information to the third device 230, and therefore a user does not need to input domain information in the third device 230, and can set up the domain environment using the domain information received from the first device 210. After domain environment is appropriately set up, the third device 230 can receive domain-related services provided by the domain-management server without additional user input.
  • [0040]
    If a user directly connects the third device 230 to the first device 210, the aforementioned operations can be omitted. The first device 210 can provide its domain information to the third device 230, and the first device 210 informs a domain-management server (not shown) of the fact that the third device 230 has joined the domain. Here, the domain information of the domain-management server (not shown) is updated.
  • [0041]
    When the domain-environment setup of the third device 230 is completed, the third device 230 can connect to the domain-management server (not shown), and register it in the domain-management server using domain information received from the first device 210. Further, when a new device is registered in the domain-management server, the domain-management server informs all devices belonging to the domain of the registration. In this manner, all devices belonging to the same domain can keep the same domain information.
  • [0042]
    FIG. 3 is a block diagram illustrating a device for providing domain information according to an exemplary embodiment. The device 300 illustrated in FIG. 3 is a device that provides domain information, and corresponds to the first device 210 illustrated in FIG. 2.
  • [0043]
    The device 300 for providing domain information includes a storage module 310, a communication-interface module 320, a device-connection module 330, and a control module 340.
  • [0044]
    The storage module 310 stores domain information, and the stored domain information includes the type, function and identification information of a device included in the domain, and information about a domain-management server like a network address (e.g., an URL) of the domain-management server that manages the domain. Further, the storage module 310 can include information of the device 300.
  • [0045]
    The communication-interface module 320 communicates with the domain-management server, or communicates with other devices belonging to the domain through a wired or wireless medium. Further, the communication-interface module 320 can communicate with devices intending to join a domain.
  • [0046]
    The device-connection module 330 is a module to directly connect to other devices, and can be a communication module supporting the communication between devices such as a USB communication module or an IEEE1394 communication module. However, the exemplary embodiments are not limited thereto, and another communication module as would be understood by one skilled in the art may be substituted therefor.
  • [0047]
    The control module 340 controls the overall operation of the device 300, and especially extracts domain information stored in the storage module 3100 and generates data to transmit the extracted domain information to the device intending to join the domain.
  • [0048]
    The operation between modules constituting the device 300 illustrated in FIG. 3 is described in detail with reference to FIGS. 4 and 5 as follows.
  • [0049]
    FIG. 4 illustrates a method of providing domain information according to an exemplary embodiment.
  • [0050]
    If the communication-interface module 320 receives a message requesting information of a device 300 from a device with an intention to join a domain while informing of the existence of the device (S410), the control module 340 extracts information of the device 300 from the storage module 310, and transmits the extracted information to the device through the communication-interface module 320 (S420). That is, the aforementioned discovery process is performed.
  • [0051]
    Then, if the device sends a request for domain information to the device 300 (operation S430), the control module 340 extracts domain information stored in the storage module 310, and transmits the extracted domain information to the device through the communication interface module 320 (S440).
  • [0052]
    The device sets up domain environment using the received domain information (S450), connects to the domain-management server (not shown) based on the domain information, and informs the domain of the joining (8460). Here, the domain-management server updates the existing domain information (8470), and broadcast the result of the update to all devices belonging to the current domain. As such, all devices belonging to the domain can keep the same domain information.
  • [0053]
    As another example, the domain-environment setup of the device is completed, the device 300 can inform all devices joining in the domain and the domain-management server of the fact that a new device belongs to the domain. That is, the device that provides domain information can broadcast the update of the domain information by the device joining the domain.
  • [0054]
    FIG. 5 illustrates a method of providing domain information according to another exemplary embodiment.
  • [0055]
    A user connects a device intending to join a domain to the device-connection module 330 of the device (S510).
  • [0056]
    If the device sends a request for domain information to the device 300, the control module 340 extracts domain information stored in the storage module 310, and transmits the extracted domain information to the device through the device-connection module 330 (S530).
  • [0057]
    The device intending to join the domain sets up domain environment using the received domain information (S540), and the device 300 connects to the domain-management server through the communication-interface module 320, and informs that a new device has joined the domain (S550).
  • [0058]
    Here, the domain-management server updates the existing domain information (operation S560), and broadcasts the result of the update to devices belonging to the current domain. As such, devices belonging to the domain can keep the same domain information.
  • [0059]
    The term “module”, as used herein, means, but is not limited to, a software or hardware component, such as a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) or an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC), which performs certain tasks. A module may be configured to reside on the addressable storage medium and configured to be executed on one or more processors.
