QUANTIL has multiple security features to protect the integrity and access to interactive live video streams, including:
URL Token Validation
URL tokens are generated at the customer origin and then added to the URL in a query string. The customer creates a URL for a live video stream, which is configured to expire at a specific time and/or date. The customer also configures the URL with a key, which QUANTIL uses to validate the stream before the content is distributed to the viewer.
QUANTIL provides geoblocking for interactive live video streams that are broadcast and viewed in the United States or Europe. This is used for location-based access management.
A HTTP referer is an optional field that enables the customer to specify the address of a HTTP request. The URL of the page where a viewer accesses an interactive live video stream is recorded and the information is stored in the web server log. In this way, the HTTP referer is used to determine the traffic performance of an interactive live video stream.
A whitelist is used to provide permissions to an interactive live video stream for select IP addresses.
A blacklist is used to block access to an interactive live video stream for select IP addresses.
