A first storage unit is bound to a second storage unit based on a binding type associated with content on the first storage unit, the first storage unit being operated through a first host device, and the second storage unit being operated through a second host device. When content on the first storage unit is requested in the first host device, the first host device will calculate an account identifier based on the binding type associated with the requested content and send the account identifier to a server. The server will send the account identifier to the second host device, and the second storage unit will use the account identifier to calculate a credential. The credential will be sent to the first host device through the server. The credential can be used to access the requested content if the credential is valid.
