Hey guys, I need help. I installed adobe media server and it works great. But the problem I have is that everyone can stream on my server, literally. How can I prevent people from doing this? I'm using obs for streaming to the server, I just type in server field - rtmp://ip/live and stream key something like - livestream, then I connect rtmp://ip/live/livestream to any player and can watch the stream, but anyone who knows how this work can do this and start his own livefeed on my server. I need a full complete guide how to secure my server because I didn't find any. IP whitelist for streamers would be great too. Please, help.
You can limit access by using (relatively) simple Server-Side ActionScript to require a username/password for publishing streams to use, out of FMLE or your preferred encoding software. Wirecast, for example, supports the use of a username/password for RTMP streaming. You can find an overview of securing your FMS setup here:
I'm available as a consultant for this type of work.
