RTMPE handshake breakdown

Real Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP) is a proprietary protocol developed by Adobe Systems for streaming audio, video and data over the Internet, between a Flash player and a server. Protected Streaming is called a DRM technology by Adobe. It is used to give the impression that digital content (video or audio) is being protected from unauthorized use. Content is encrypted by the Flash Media Server “on the fly”. This means there is no encryption of the source file needed (which is different to Microsoft DRM, for instance). For data transmission, a special protocol is used: RTMPE or RTMPS. (wikipedia, 2)

Time has come, soon flash p2p applications over RTMFP must not be fixed on the stratus handshake anymore. Thanks to reverse engineering… More info:
