comment Without using SSL, what's the most secure way to make an AJAX request to a PHP page?
I'm just trying to be 'secure enough' or 'a big enough pain in the ass' to prevent the thought of tampering from crossing their minds. There is no one particular area I'm trying to secure. And, yep, there are multiple images, so I'm going to try implementing your suggested process. But this still leaves the issue of someone just firing off Javascript, which there is seemingly no solution for.

I wish I could give two correct answers. You basically reaffirmed everything I thought. And you were absolutely spot on with how I'm doing everything (re: timestamps).

I don't need end-to-end SSL because this is just a game for a few people, so yes, you could consider it like hiding my diary from my kid brother. Likewise, implementing SSL for the pages this game is currently embedded in would be an undertaking in itself. Basically, I'm just wanting something that's secure enough to discourage them from trying to cheat the system (they are fairly technically savvy). As for data/functionality, I'm not sure how I could elaborate more than what I've already stated in the question. Could you be more specific on what you're looking for?
