Audio Streaming with SSL now included with RaudioStream
Your secure Shoutcast and Icecast connection with SSL
From and to all of our new and old RaudioStream customers, the Audio Streaming service with SSL will be included in the price of your plan.
As part of our continuous improvement of our services and since we assumed the RaudioStream business line, we have been making improvements requested by our clients, seeking to strengthen our commercial relationship. That is why we have decided to eliminate the additional SSL charge, and now it will include the value of the contracted service.
If you still do not have this service, you can request information on how to apply it to your service so that you can enjoy the benefits offered by an SSL connection (green candidate) in your transmission url.
What is SSL and why should I use it?
SSL certificates are used to assure the visitor of a website, its authenticity, ensuring that the website belongs to who it claims to be. Having the URL of your transmission under SSL will allow your audio to be listened to in any browser without the annoying restrictions of the mixed content of your web page, which translates into more listeners for your radio.
When do you need to use a digital certificate?
Currently, securing the transmission of information is the main application of SSL certificates. However, with the increasing incidence of identity theft, the protection of personally identifiable information becomes increasingly important. This category of data would include identity and social security numbers, in addition to email addresses.
What is SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)?
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protects data transferred over http by using encryption activated by an SSL certificate on a server. SSL certificates contain a public key and a private key. The public key is used to encrypt the information and the private key to decrypt it. When a browser is directed to a secure domain, an "SSL presentation" occurs that authenticates the client and server and establishes an encryption method and a unique session key. They can then start a secure session that protects the privacy and integrity of the message.
