The most protected UDP transport comes from Zixi
Zixi's best-in-class security protocols and most sophisticated protection are among the biggest reasons Zixi customers and partners choose to send their content using the transport layer of the Zixi Platform.
All data in the Zixi-enabled network is protected using a multi-layered security approach:
- End-to-end data encryption using industry-standard AES ciphers with up to 256-bit keys
- Session establishment is password-protected using a secure handshake
- DTLS version 1.2 (RFC 6347) with certificate validation and strong ciphers
DTLS technology means your content is delivered via the most protected UDP transport available today. Zixi’s DTLS is unique in the industry and exclusive to the Zixi Platform.
DTLS is a communications protocol that is based on TLS (Transport Layer Security), the same robust technology used for securing most popular applications such as HTTPS. DTLS permits streaming video systems to exchange data with other appropriate systems without allowing eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery. DTLS enables Zixi to provide best-in-class security for content transported via UDP.
The security stack is available in all of Zixi software tools and SDKs.
