Today AWS Elemental MediaConnect added integration with SPEKE for key exchange with conditional access system (CAS) partners. SPEKE, which stands for Secure Packager and Encoder Key Exchange, is an open API specification that streamlines the way CAS systems integrate with MediaConnect. Using this feature, you can now encrypt live video shared using entitlements and fully control permissions for content sent to your distribution partners. This enables you to build complex distribution workflows with more granular and sophisticated conditional rights management, including time-based access, black-outs, and many other rules-based requirements. Visit the documentation pages to learn more.

AWS Elemental MediaConnect is a reliable, secure, and flexible transport service for live video that enables broadcasters and content owners to build live video workflows and securely share live content with partners and customers. MediaConnect helps customers who run 24x7 TV channels or broadcast live events transport their high-value video streams into, through, and out of the AWS Cloud in a fraction of the time and cost of satellite or fiber services. MediaConnect can function as a standalone service or within a larger video workflow that includes other AWS Media Services.
