Streambox Announces Encryption To Protect and Secure Live Video Streaming

Streambox has announced the addition of AES-128 encryption to its video streaming products and solutions. The stream level encryption is available for rackmount encoders/decoders and macOS software Media Players now and slated for all encoding/decoder/playing products in the coming months.

Streambox stream level encryption is easy to use and an inexpensive way for film producers, post production houses, and enterprises to protect valuable intellectual property or sensitive information from unauthorized users. Streambox AES-128 encryption is an add-on feature for Streambox products that encrypts every video, audio, and V-ANC packet without adding latency to the video stream.

AES-128 is an established NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) standard that provides a very high level of data security (with less distribution restrictions than AES-192 or AES-256). Streambox encrypts data at the encoder for both live streamed and recorded video using symmetric keys and salted hash key storage with no back doors (symmetric keys means the same key is used for both encrypting and decrypting).

Before Streambox's AES-128 add-on, post production houses had to deal with the extra expense and complication of a VPN or MPLS network to secure their valuable intellectual property. With Streambox AES-128 encryption built into the encoding they no longer require third party solutions, saving both money and hassle.

Streambox rackmount encoders/decoders and macOS software Media Players are currently available for the AES-128 encryption add-on withStreambox Node and Streambox Cloud (streaming & routing functions) slated for a Q1 of 2017 release. In Q2 2017, Streambox will add OSX Cloud and Hybrid Encoders, Windows 4K/VR Player, Streambox Avenir Micro and Drone Encoders, Streambox 4K Rackmount, and Streambox Cloud (with full support).
