    On DVB systems, the Common Interface (CI) is the slot where a Conditional Access Module smartcard (the decryption card for encrypted programs) is inserted.

    The conditional access system (DVB-CA) defines a common scrambling algorithm (DVB-CSA) and a common interface (DVB-CI) for accessing scrambled content. DVB system providers develop their proprietary conditional access systems within these specifications.
