webrtcHacks - The Open Source rfc5766-turn-server Project – Interview with Oleg Moskalenko

Victor and I had the chance to interview Oleg Moskalenko, the man behind rfc5766-turn-server.

Here are some of the questions we asked:

  • Why did he decide to make a TURN server?
  • Were the requirements to build a TURN server difficult? What were some of the main challenges he had to design for?
  • How did he design rfc5766-turn-server to address these challenges?
  • Is rfc5766-turn-server safe to assume that it is fully RFC5766 compliant?

To find out more about the project, read on more about our discussion in our article here.
