    Minimal security to protect jpgs?

      Hi all,

      I'm writing an application that loads jpgs and displays them, and I need some minimal form of security to protect the jpgs. I can't compile them into the swf since they are always changing, so what I'm looking for is some way to prevent the average user from just going to Temporary Internet Files and double-clicking on the jpeg and being able to view it. I had thought of removing the first four header bytes from the jpgs on the server, and in Flash I could add the bytes when I loaded the clip, but there doesn't seem to be any way to manipulate a stream like that. Another idea would be using swfs instead of jpgs, and doing something like making them completely transparent, and once loaded Flash could correct the transparency and display them.

      Has anyone done anything like this before? I'd appreciate any ideas.
