Secure video streaming

over any ip network

Best-in-class security protocols and the most sophisticated protection are among the biggest reasons why customers and partners choose to send their content using the Zixi Software-Defined Video Platform (SDVP).

All streaming data that moves through the Zixi Enabled Network of integrated software and devices 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

Why DTLS for secure video streaming?

DTLS technology means your content is delivered via the most protected UDP transport available today. DTLS is unique in the industry and exclusive to the SDVP.

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. This protocol permits streaming video systems to exchange data with other appropriate systems without allowing eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery. DTLS enables the SDVP to provide best-in-class security for content transported via UDP.

The security stack is available in all Zixi software tools and SDKs for secure video streaming that's easy to implement.
