How to hide wmssignature from manifest url on Nimble origin?

Habib 2023-06-10 19:14:43 UTC in Paywall: WMSAuth and beyond

Hi, I am trying to set up a streaming environment where I will have one origin server operated by Nimble Streamer. I will have multiple edges in multiple regions. Currently for the time being I am trying to set up a primary-level authentication to my live & on-demand stream and I am using wms paywall method to achieve this. I can successfully play the contents using the wmssignature key with the URL. But the problem is, this whole URL including the wmssignature key is visible when any user is inspecting the player in the browser. and using that URL user can play my live stream in any hls player/ vlc player.

So now I want to know how can I stop this.
