What are the suggested ways for implementing authentication/entitlement management in EMA C++ API?

I have implemented an EMA provider to source the data to different downstream applications, and I want to implement an authentication or entitlement management feature such that the access control policy can be enforced to the connected users. One of the potential use cases is that only some host/users can connect to the service, unauthorized user will not be able to login and the connection should be dropped.

Scenario:

The downstream applications connected to my application directly and the data exchanging is in Reuters format by using the EMA C++ API.


Are there any suggested way/best practice for implementing such features under the Reuters EMA API usage?

Thanks for reaching out to us.

Typically, the Refinitiv Real-Time APIs support authentication and entitlement via Data Access Control System (DACS). Data Access Control System allows customers to control who can access and use various sets of data in the customers’ financial information management system; thus customers can also determine how many people are using which sets of data. You can also implement DACS to support a token-based authentication system, as mentioned in this article.

For more information regarding DACS, please contact your Refinitiv Account team or Sales team directly.

I hope that this information is of help.
