SEVU: Scale Engine Virtual Usher

Stream Access Authorization and Security

ScaleEngine's Stream Access Authorization and Security system includes our HMAC system and our SEVU token security system, which protects valuable content for businesses around the world. It is resilient, robust and scales up to match your growth.

SEVU is the only token security system that supports revoking access and event logging, along with flexible IP network granularity, and definable frequency of access restrictions.

Recent benchmarking has tested out at 5000 tickets per second issued with the API, and 1500 concurrent issuing and verifying API calls. It secures Live and VOD streams with simple API calls that enforce your business rules.

Your application issues tickets to legitimate viewers, and our Virtual Usher verifies that the ticket allows that user to see the stream. If you want to revoke access, a simple api command will cut off viewing within 120 seconds. Using either our control panel or our API, you can examine usage of any SEVU ticket in real time with our logging.

SEVU API documentation is here . Example code is available for ticket request methods for C#, php and java.

There is a SEVU wordpress plugin is available. To issue a ticket from within wordpress, simply append ?[sevu_ticket app_name=myaccount-live] to your HLS urls, and we handle the rest. You can also revoke access from the control panel at any time.

Secure HTTP download is available with our Secure Link implementation.

HMAC token security is available with our HMAC implementation.
