QUANTIL has multiple security features to protect the integrity and access to a live video stream, 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 live stream before the content is distributed to the viewer.
QUANTIL provides geoblocking for live video streams that are broadcast and viewed in the United States or Europe. This is used for location-based access management.
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 a 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 a live stream.
A whitelist is used to provide permissions to a live video stream for select IP addresses.
A blacklist is used to block access to a live video stream for select IP addresses.
