Why do we not have it now (price, resource consumption, delay due to encryption, something else)?
How does Facetime manage it?
- End-to-end encryption
- Runs on mobile resources
- Low latency
- MP, h.264, RTP
Where is big business priority? DRM is all over the place so you can't even watch some content on particular devices, yet when it comes to user content, the options for securing your video content are quite limited.
It would make sense that an h-dot standard should incorporate options for content encryption. The horsepower is already there, and it's fairly likely that there could be some efficiency from integrated algorithms that compress and encrypt simultaneously.
There are products that encrypt from camera to storage and client. It adds cost typically and more specifically it adds overhead in bandwidth and processing. Two that come to mind are Bosch and IndigoVision.
Would you like to see it as a regular feature of products you use?
What I am saying is that, IMHO, it is a regular feature of products used today, I was just using FaceTime as an example that most people have used.
But Dropcam, Arlo, and Smartcam also encrypts video.
As B mentioned several camera vendors offer options for encrypting.
If all else fails, VPN's can be encrypted also.
Are you asking about cloud video or local video? The demand I assume would be far less for LAN only video.
