Token Authentication

Token authentication helps to protect CDN streams from being snitched. Similar to HTTP URL signing, this feature allows customers to enter a secret key during setting up a CDN resource. Then, customers can use the secret key, along with expiry date and allowed/blocked referrer site to generate the token from a script.

To enable token authentication:

  1. Enter your secret key and secure path using Skyrider UI.
  2. Download .NET or Java token generator.
  3. Generate the token with the secret key, allow referrer, deny referrer, and expiry date. 
  4. Append the token with your stream URL, eg ?token= 110ea31ac69c09a2db0bdd74238843631cdab498ff7e6e75cbd99cc4d05426ab679a57015d4e48438c97b921652daec62de3829f8ff437e27449cfdfc2f1e5d9fc47f14e91a51ea7
  5. Embed with your website.
