CDN Authentication

For our Content Delivery Network (CDN) customers, rich media assets are money. So every unauthorized view is like lost revenue.

Internap CDN Authentication service makes it easy to manage access to your content.

Securing Your Assets

With full integration into your existing subscription or billing services, Internap allows you to:

Protect – Your media stays safe because it is available only to your intended audience

Control – Access can be restricted based on geographic region or audience type, further ensuring visibility only to the appropriate and authorized viewers

How Does Internap Authentication Service Work?

Whenever a user tries to view your secure media, Internap Authentication service engages the customer-specified authentication service(s), initiating a simple five-step process:

  • The user requests protected media from Internap
  • The user provides identifying information or identifying information is obtained automatically
  • Internap checks with you for authorization
  • You reply to Internap
  • If access is authorized, Internap delivers the media to your user

Internap can protect your assets using token-based authentication, which relies on a strengthened logon (often including an accompanying timestamp for a limited viewing window), to ensure that only pre-authorized viewers can access your content.

With Internap Authentication service, you can be confident that you are using the most complete media delivery solution in the industry.
