    You can use the Publisher IP Filter feature as an added layer of security. This means that whoever has your streamID token can’t push in their own streams on the server. So, only whitelisted IP addresses can publish live streams on the server.

    The Publisher IP Filter can be configured through the application’s advanced settings in the Ant Media web panel.


    To prevent third-party sites from embedding your streams, then you can use the Nginx reverse Proxy configuration.
