Hi there,

Hope you all doing well.

I have a question regarding with Azure Media Service.
When I provide some contents to end-users via AMS, do I set the Single Sign on authentication based on Azure AD?

Any comments would be appreciated. :)

Thank you

    I think you are asking about Content Protection using AAD right? It's not an out of the box feature, but can be built.

    See this tutorial showing how to use AAD authentication along with AES-128 content encryption. It is best if you have some knowledge and background in security and identity before going down this path.

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/media-services/latest/architecture-azure-ad-content-protection

    It is optional but recommended that you are familiar with the following concepts before beginning this tutorial:

    Digital Rights Management (DRM)
    Azure Media Services (AMS) v3
    AMS content key policies using the AMS API v3, Azure portal, or the Azure Media Services Explorer (AMSE) tool
    Azure AD v2 endpoints on the Microsoft Identity Platform
    Modern cloud authentication such as OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect
    Authorization code flow in OAuth 2.0 and why PKCE is needed
    Delegated permission vs application permission
    JWT token, its claims, and signing key rollover (included in sample.)
