Require Password Authentication from RTMP- or RTSP-Based Encoders
Place restrictions on RTMP- and RTSP-based publishing, allowing publishing from only specific IP addresses. This prevents unauthorized computers from streaming through your Wowza Streaming Engine instance.
Restrict Stream Playback to Specific Computers and Devices
Restrict playback to specific IP addresses and use SecureToken content protection. SecureToken is a challenge-and-response security system for playback on all viewing formats. It guards against spoofing threats and protects each connection with a random, single-use key and password, or “shared secret.”
Use the Free Wowza StreamLock AddOn
The Wowza StreamLock™ AddOn is a Wowza security option for network encryption that provides near-instant provisioning of free 2048-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates for RTMP and secure HTTP streaming.
On-the-Fly DRM for Any Screen
For premium content, studio-approved DRM offers yet another level of protection. Wowza DRM provides integration with various DRM platforms, delivering real-time Microsoft® PlayReady® or Google Widevine encryption of live and video-on-demand content to any screen. Wowza DRM enables three third-party DRM key-management service providers to deliver license keys to Wowza Streaming Engine during encryption and to the viewer’s device during playback.

Wowza DRM is also compatible with Widevine and Marlin DRM platforms for MPEG-DASH content using Common Encryption (CENC). Leverage the Wowza DRM API to develop a module that handles the key exchange for real-time encryption between Wowza Streaming Engine and a specific Widevine or Marlin DRM provider.
