Akamai DAP Real Time Data Provider Module

The Akamai Data Activation Platform (DAP) is a privacy-first system that protects end-user privacy by only allowing them to be targeted as part of a larger cohort. Akamai DAP Real time data Provider automatically invokes the DAP APIs and submit audience segments and the Secure Ad ID(SAID) to the bid-stream. SAID is a JWT/JWE which carries with it the cohorts and only a side-car or trusted server in the demand-side platform is allowed to see its contents.
