Thread: Wowza StreamLock AddOn for HTTPS

    Default Wowza StreamLock AddOn for HTTPS

    Wowza StreamLock AddOnóWowza StreamLock AddOn provides near-instant provisioning of free 256-bit SSL certificates and greatly simplifies deploying the proven security of SSL to wrap your RTMP session using RTMPS. StreamLock-provisioned certificates provide the best security when used with RTMP, but they can also be used for secure HTTP streaming (HTTPS).

    are the extra steps to secure HTTPS or enabling this add-on will do automatically?

    It can be used with HLS but is not necessary if you are already encrypting.

    Is there any advantage or disadvantage of using StreamLock (or more generally HTTPS with any certificate) to protect HLS stream, compared to securing HTTP Live Streaming with AES-128 encryption, using method described at http://www.wowza.com/forums/content.php?59 ?

    AES-128 requires an extra HTTP(S) call to get the decryption key, so it may be a bit slower (though HTTPS handshake could be as slow as making an extra call).

    But are there any considerations which favor either one of these 2 methods from security perspective? Which one is more secure?

    I don't have an authoritative comparison. Varied choices and implementations are good overall for everyone.
