Sometimes a stream publishing and playback should be restricted by the stream name. For example, a DDoS attack to the server by publishing an RTMP stream from a random addresses pool to a standard RTMP port may be prevented by stream name (or names) restriction. To do this, since build 5.2.1739 stream publishing and playback may be restricted by a certain name or a name mask.


By default, a stream with any name may be published or played. A restrictions may be applied by the following parameter


Or a certain stream name may be allowed but all the other stream names forbidden


The asterisk mask defining all the streams names must be the last in the list.

The parameter may be applied without WCS restart. If a stream with a forbidden name is already publishing and playing, it will not be stopped, but a new subscribers cannot play it, a new publication also cannot be started.
