@DW - can i not encrypt every field and send that across? if i am able to decrypt it fine, wouldnt that be proof of 'authentication'? taking it further, why cant i encrypt everything as one value?

(a) are you suggesting that the HMAC be created by putting all the inputs together? (b) if i'm sending across all those values in plaintext, wouldnt that defeat the purpose of creating this hash? (c) is this HMAC hash any different from a regular hash - md5?

@frankodwyer - yes, you're right, an attacker can send any request with this encrypted message and my system will accept it. see security.stackexchange.com/questions/3479/… please
