For serious video publishers who use the Wowza Media Server for HLS streaming, and who want maximum level of security for each stream, MediaGration brings HLSe pay per view and subscription to WMSPanel users. 

A single plugin provides both API-based encryption and aliasing for the Wowza Media Server. Wowza Media Server aliasing provides content protection utilizes HLS aliasing and one-time use URLs. The Wowza Media Server Encryption provides AES-128 encryption to all live and VOD streams in the HLS format; sometimes called HLSe.   This plugin requires MMCart in an AJAX eShop site and works in concert with the Wowza Media Aliasing plugin. 

HLSe encryption involves the pre-processing of every HLS video segment in an HLS stream; each is encrypted with a different key; making assembly and decryption and reassembly of the segments both technically and economically unfeasible - no matter what brute force attack might be directed at accessing a dollar video.
