Developers: MS Hopes To Lure iOS Apps With API Mapping Tool 191

Your argument was actually quite valide. The only thing I would add to it, is signing the page. Let me explain:

1. Do all the above steps
2. Hash ( and store ) the output buffer ( PHP ) before flushing it to the browser
3. When preparing the POST to send the auth to the server, have the JS include the hash of the current page

If they do not match: you know code was injected in the page.

What I really don't get is why would you allow desktop streaming but not an appliance if the idea is to protect your your IP and keep your traditional business model ( ad revenu ). It's much easier to rip a feed from a desktop / laptop / HTPC / whatever than from a locked appliance !

Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?
