Securing incoming RTSP streams
I am using wowza media server to pull RTSP live streams from axis video encoders. I provide username and password as part of stream path in .stream file. This information is exchanged in
plain text which makes it insecure. Is there anything i can do to secure the atleast the stream path? The full path is rtsp://username:password@ip/axis-media/media.amp
Does it work if you use AuthenticationMethod "basic" ?
Is the camera on a public IP? We might have to take a closer look. Re-start Wowza, start the stream and test playback in Wowza RTMP test player. Then zip up /conf and current access log showing re-start, stream start, and playback tests to
