PubNub Access Manager

Securing Real-Time Applications

Secure Your Real-Time Apps

The fundamental operations related to Access Manager are granting and revoking access to keys and channels. In our chat example we will want to control who can join the chat room (subscribe) as well as be able to contribute to the chat (publish).

How it Works

When you open up this page you are assigned an authorization key. This is a randomly generated key that identifies your browser instance. When you press login, the code below is then executed on the server to grant you access to send messages into the chat room. The code is an easy to use call in the existing PubNub library:

   channel  : 'chat',
   auth_key : 'abxyz12-auth-key-987tuv',
   read     : true,
   write    : true,
   ttl      : 1
