Role-based Authorization

Kraken uses role-based authorization control to secure the Web interface. Administrators can create new accounts and thus allocate an account to each user of the system.

Kraken provides three defined account roles to assign privileges to users:

RoleDefault UsernamePrivileges
VieweruserRead-only access to the system.

All rights to configure A/V and stream settings, start/stop streams, etc.

Does not include rights to reboot or upgrade the system, modify the network settings, install licenses, or manage accounts.

AdministratorhaiadminAll access rights and Administrator privileges.

All three roles provide Web interface access to the system. Please refer to the Important Notice (postcard included in the box or available from the Download Center on the Haivision Support Portal) for the default sign-in credentials.


For security purposes, Haivision strongly advises you to change the default password for all accounts during initial configuration.

Administrators can create, delete, and change the password for all accounts from the Accounts page (see Managing User Accounts). Operators and viewers can manage their password from the My Account page (see Changing Your Password).


Any changes to the default passwords, created accounts, and deleted default accounts will be lost after a Factory Reset or a firmware downgrade. Factory Reset restores the default accounts and passwords.
