Thread: Is there any plan to provide DRM for Flash player?

    Smile Is there any plan to provide DRM for Flash player?

    Hello,

    I have studied the different solutions which provided by Wowza. Unfortunately, I could not find a DRM solution for the Flash player.

    Is there any plan to provide DRM for Flash player?

    Please accept my apology if I am asking a wrong question.

    Thanks.

    For Flash, use SecureToken in the MediaSecurity addon, and RTMPE or RTMPS protocol

    And to secure the secured player from hotlinking there is this:

    Hi, Richard,

    Thank you for your information and it really helps.

    However, using SecureToken seems not a perfect solution. The SecureToken is a fixed (hard coded) secret which shared by the server and the player.

    All instances of player on the client side are sharing the same SecureToken and seems not secure enough.

    Is there any way that each player or client has an individual or dynamic secret?

    Is Wowza planning to provide Flash Access DRM integration?

    Thanks.

    You can add a layer yourself, perhaps an expiring token you set in your web app, store in a cookie, pass to Wowza in NetConnection.connect or NetStream.play for validation.

    There is no short-term plan as far I know.

    Hello Richard, I was wondering that since a year has passed whether the Wowza roadmap now includes Flash based DRM support. Specific EzDRM using Adobe Access, rather than PlayReady. Would it be possible to comment on support (roadmapped or otherwise).

    Thanks,
    Scott

    hi Scott,

    The status is the same. I don't think there is anything on the roadmap for RTMP DRM. You can use RTMPS or RTMPE
