Enable Token Authentication

To enable Token Authentication ("Token Auth"), you need to apply specific settings in the Segmented Media Protection behavior in your AMD property.

Let's set up Token Auth

  1. Set the Token Authentication slider to "On."
  2. Set the Encryption Key. Enter a hexadecimal value to serve as a "trusted shared secret." Comprise it of an even number of characters, but don't exceed 32 total characters. For example: "eee7e9157f81b2f6d471bf2c". You can also click the cycle button ( ) to automatically generate a proper value.
  3. Make note of this value. You use this value as the "Key" when generating the token.

What's next?

Don't enable your AMD property on the production network (or test it on staging) just yet. First, you need to at least Generate the token and apply it to your content. Plus, there are other options and features you can add, as discussed below.
