What is RTMPS

RTMPS is RTMP (Real Time Messaging Protocol) that is transmitted over a TLS/SSL connection, encrypted during transmission from point A to point B. This prevents security breaches such as "man in the middle" from succeeding during transmission. RTMPS is recommended rather than RTMPE for stream encryption.

RTMPS requires an SSL certificate be installed on the Wowza® Media Systems sever, which can be done by using the Wowza StreamLock™ service or another SSL certificate authority.

StreamLock™ provides a free SSL certificate when useing RTMPS
