Access Control - Viewer Level Validation
Through Cleeng Core, you will have access to our advanced Access Control technology to ensure your viewers are not sharing their accounts. Below you'll find insights into how this works from a viewer validation level.
1. Unique viewer credentials
In order to watch a video with your platform, the viewer needs to create an account with you. This account contains all of the viewer's access privileges (purchases). It can be used across devices to access videos anytime, anywhere.
2. IP Validation
Cleeng enforces granular access control to specific countries and the number of simultaneous viewer IPs. Cleeng will control that a given viewer does not access their account using more than 3 IPs (or devices) within 3 hours. This way, if someone shares their credentials with "friends", their access would be automatically blocked.
In addition to the existing access control technique with Cleeng Core, Cleeng also offers a more sophisticated solution for account sharing and revenue optimizing solutions,
3. Concurrent access control
Concurrent access is a method to limit access to a number of concurrent devices at a given time. Upon setting the limit, you can register the viewer device into the pool. The provided device is added to the pool of devices and is kept in the pool for 3 hours. The default limit of devices in the pool is 4. Then any other additional attempt with a new device will be blocked. You can learn more about the topic in our Developers Portal.
