Incoming Stream Security on Wowza Streaming Engine 4
I upgraded to Wowza Streaming Engine 4. I tested an application, and I had some questions about security.
I setup a Publisher name and password in the Streaming Engine Manager with the same name as my application that I setup. Additionally, I setup another Publisher name and password with a different name. I was able to stream on the same application with both Publisher names.
How can I set this to only allow Publisher 8132 to stream to Application 8132?
It is possible to set a custom publish username and password, per-application, using a custom mapped publish.password file, however, at this time the setup will need to be configured manually using XML. Take a look at
step 3 in this article, which describes the steps:
You will not be able to access or maintain the per-application publisher username and password in Wowza Streaming Engine Manager, however, proceeding with a manual configuration will not cause any operational issues.
I would expect that this feature is under consideration for a later release of WSEM. To be sure, I will run this by our product management team for review.
