Thread: Secure RTMP publishing

  1. #1

    Default Secure RTMP publishing


    I surveyed some articles about secure RTMP publishing, and found 2 related modules ModuleSecureURLParams and ModuleRTMPAuthenticate(less data).
    I am trying to find out ways to encrypt the publishing data like RTMPS, but nothing found.
    Maybe it's a stupid question, but anyway to encrypt the publishing data between encoder and wowza server?

    You will need to do this on the encoder side, with an encoder that supports RTMPE. FMLE does not support RTMPE but FFMPEG does, I believe.

    Hi Salvadore,

    That's great to hear it's possible. Could you kindly prompt instructions or articles to tell how to configure rtmpe on both wms & rtmp encoder(ffmpeg)?

    I don't think you need anything on the Wowza side. The RTMPE Addon is required for RTMPE playback, but not publishing. I have tried it with FFmpeg and it did work, and all that was required was to use rtmpe, for example:

    ffmpeg -re -i "%WMSAPP_HOME%/content/sample.mp4"  -vcodec libx264  -vb 150000 -g 60 -vprofile baseline -level 2.1 -acodec aac -ab 64000 -ar 48000 -ac 2 -vbsf h264_mp4toannexb -strict experimental -f flv rtmpe://localhost/live/ffmpegStream
    In the Wowza logs:

    connect-pending	session	rtmpe://localhost/live
    connect	session	rtmpe://localhost/live
    comment	server	-
    create	stream	rtmpe://localhost/live
    publish	stream	rtmpe://localhost/live

    Thanks, Richard.
    BTW, Could I say RTMPS publishing is not supported between encorder and wms? (I prefer to use RTMPS as wowza's suggesting)

    We recommend RTMPS encryption for playback. It is unusual to use RTMPS for publishing, but it can work as far as I know if you have the proper SSL certificates involved.
