Authentication in realtime frameworks can be challenging. Perhaps this is because the way these systems work is quite different from a regular web app. The risk of not correctly authenticating your sockets traffic is that you could end up sniffing information on other users streams. The socket server will not automagically know about the logged-in user, thus anyone could join any stream.
