comment How do i use a guessable ID for authentication
"There is no true solution" is kind of what I was expecting actually. Because of an NDA I can't specifically say what the device does but it's a dead simple wearable device that monitors some aspect of the owner's daily activity. The device API itself is readonly unfortunately, so writing the key to the device wouldn't really work, I actually considered that and contacted the manufacturers about it. What we're trying to do is allow the user to plug in the device and have it auto-sync and allow them to update their information, using the device to verify their identity. No un/password prompt.

I'm pulling down data about the user's use of that device and only want to allow someone who has the physical device to pull down the owner's information. It's possible someone could get access to the device who isn't the owner but the use case isn't THAT private that I'm worried about that.
