    Secret key API in an Ajax Adobe AIR app?

      I'm building an AIR app with Ajax using an API that is identical to flickr's API, with a shared secret key. The problem is that the air installation package contains all the source and I don't want to give away my shared secret. Is there any way to hide the secret? Can I hide any of the source, or put the key in the encrypted local store pre-installation, or somehow include this shared secret within the app without giving it away?
      I thought I had it figured out when I included it as a passed param in the application descriptor (e.g. <content>index.html?key=xxxxxx-secret=xxxxxxx</content>), but then I see that even the application descriptor source is included in the .air build! Is there anything I can do????

      Thanks very much for any help!
