You can enable fusion stream encryption to protect your multimedia stream (video, audio, and so on) both at rest and in transit.

What you should know

Data in transit is data that is actively moving from one location to another. Data at rest is data that is stored or archived.

For a video stream, the Archiver role encrypts your video when it receives it, and stores it in an encrypted file. The encrypted video data is sent over the network and can be decrypted only by the client.


  1. Request and install the encryption certificates on the client machines that are authorized to access your company's private data.
  2. Enable encryption on your Archiver or individual cameras.

After you finish

For more information, refer to the Fusion stream encryption chapter of the Security Center Administrator Guide.
