What makes VdoCipher more secure than others?


Most of the video hosting services you encounter will claim to provide security.
The means of security or protection which they say, will be varied – like RTMP E, HLS E,  AES -128 Encryption, Domain privacy/whitelisting, password protection, SSL security, IP lock. But can these technologies even be considered as security. Some of tools like RTMP Dump, Video Download Helper, YTD, easy tech hacks, URL sniffing easily work on these.


-What are the security flaws in them ?

-How easy is to download the videos being said to be protected by these technologies?

-Security flaws in the so called secure technologies, What is VdoCipher better version for each ?



Technology/Service Name

Technical Details & Flaw

VdoCipher better version of the technology

RTMP/RTMPe

RTMP dump downloader can download the videos, not high secure. There is no progressive buffer , causing poor streaming experience in slow connections.

DRM level Encryption with high secure key exchange mechanism. (Hardware level encryption). No downloader or hack can download videos. We use same protocols as used by companies like Netflix. Viewer Specific Watermarking to discourage screen capture, Mobile integrations to totally stop screen capture.

HLS E or Modified forms of HLS E

Video download helper plugin on firefox, Network hacks can grab videos as key exchange happens along with video stream making it very open. It is kind of prevention by obscurification, rather than prevention by DRM technology.

DRM level Encryption with high secure key exchange mechanism. (Hardware level encryption). No downloader or hack can download videos. We use same protocols as used by companies like Netflix. Viewer Specific Watermarking to discourage screen capture, Mobile integrations to totally stop screen capture.

AES -128

Very basic level of encryption and key exchange, easy to setup but easy to break because of open key exchange mechanism.

DRM level Encryption with high secure key exchange mechanism. (Hardware level encryption). No downloader or hack can download videos. We use same protocols as used by companies like Netflix. Viewer Specific Watermarking to discourage screen capture, Mobile integrations to totally stop screen capture.

Domain privacy/whitelist

It is a way to prevent video url from playing outside a site, but if a video can be downloaded , then it has no meaning. Simple whitelisting still is hackable, API based dynamic urls are more secure.

API/Plugin based dynamic urls providing higher security as compared to plain whitelist.

IP/Geo lock

They can said to be restriction rather than security from download/piracy.

VdoCipher also provides ip/geo restriction

Password Protection

Password can be shared or in some cases, video url is accessible even before password is put. Thus, it eventually leads to download of video and piracy

Time based restriction possible to prevent password misuse. Downloads by any tool not possible.
