We’re pleased to announce the launch of PubNub Access Manager (PAM), adding serverless access control to the PubNub Data Stream Network. You can now manage granular permissions for your real-time apps and data.
What does PAM enable?
- Developers can grant fine-grained Publish/Subscribe permissions for their real-time apps and data, without hosting authentication services
- Access control can be granted at various levels: person, device, channel or key
- Works with any existing authentication system: Facebook Connect, Twitter, Google, LDAP, or homegrown solutions
So what types of apps can I build with this?
- Subscription services to real-time financial, traffic, or social data streams where access can be easily granted and revoked on a per subscriber basis
- Point to point apps, such as home automation, where secure real-time data is streaming bi-directionally between devices
- Social apps where secure real-time communication is peer-to-peer, with the option to monitor and intervene in user interactions when needed (ban a user, change privileges, etc.)
