Zencoder can perform AES encryption of video files. Our implementation is designed to be compatible with HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) outputs, but can be used to encrypt any video file similarly. When used for segmented outputs, only the segment files will be encrypted (leaving the manifest/playlist files readable, as expected). For HLS outputs, the necessary key/IV data will be added to the M3U8 manifest file, and encryption key files will be included with the other deliverable files if applicable.
Encryption is turned on when encryption_key, encryption_key_url, encryption_method, or encryption_key_rotation_period are specified.
|encryption_method||none||Set the encryption method to use for encrypting.|
|encryption_key||none||Set a single encryption key to use rather than having Zencoder generate one|
|encryption_key_url||none||Set a URL to a single encryption key to use rather than having Zencoder generate one|
|encryption_key_rotation_period||none||Rotate to a new encryption key after a number of segments|
|encryption_key_url_prefix||none||Prepend key URLs with the passed string|
|encryption_iv||none||Set an initialization vector to use when encrypting|
|encryption_password||none||Sets a password to use for generating an initialization vector|
