Is wowza really required for hotlink stream protection

Hi,We are working on authentication and we had already looked in IP authentication, User agent,group referer for deny anonymous users to download VOD stream.After all above scenario didn't helped so we thought about URL authentication using wmsAuthSign token.We found c# class which is returning m3u8 url appending with wmsAuthSign signature but still it allow anonymous user to download VOD stream,
is wowza streaming server really required for VOD streaming restriction ?

Thanks.

wmsauth supported for both wowza and nimble at the same level.
please check https://wmspanel.com/paywall/faq for your paywall problem resolutions

ok..thanks for your reply..but we'd tried to configure rules in wmspanel site but still i'm not sure about hotlink protection..
how does it deny any hls url to download from browser ?
I'm able to download streams from any browser :(
The URL looks like http://servername.com/vod/filename/playlist.m3u8?wmsAuthSign=token
but it allow us to download stream..
where does nimble store that token whether it is valid or not ?
please provide me detailed information..
thanks.
