Two-way SSL authentication


is there a way to implement two-way SSL authentication during SSL negotiations, to authenticate both a client and a server using client and server certificates exchanged during SSL handshake?

Great question @Piotr Romanczyk- thanks for asking. Wowza does not currently offer an option for two-way authentication at this time. You would need to implement the Wowza secure tokens in addition to SSL handshake to authenticate the client.

Thank you for your response. My question about 2 way SSL handshake support (where camera and Wowza both exchange and validate their SSL certificates) was to be for a camera stream push scenario (RTSP ANNOUNCE, RTMP push).
