What is HLS encryption?
HLS Encryption allows video publishers send encrypted video over HTTP for playback on desktop and mobile devices. HLS utilizes the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) as well as other technologies to seamlessly protect content from non-authorized streaming, piracy, and redistribution by others, with no detectable difference to video playback.

MediaGration Simple DRM Plus, is the strategic employment of many security technologies; which, when combined, form a very strong protection of the stream and the content.
a)Streamed from a local secure media server
b)Content is stored in a protected directory
c)Alias based file access (single use URLs)
f)128-bit AES encryption
Adding Encryption to HLS
Encryption for HLS streaming is implemented on during the ingestion process. Unencrypted HLS is a video serving protocol that uses different bit rates, based on network bandwidth changes; HLS breaks a video into a sequence of small file segments; each is sent intelligenty to the receiving devices.
HLS for long-form videos, that is, videos greater than 5 Mb, or longer than 10 minutes, must be segmented (videos longer than approximately 10 minutes).
