    uniquely identifying an installed application


      Is there any way that an AIR application can identify itself through the HTML component to a webserver that is impossible to counterfeit. I know that the appID and pubID are unique but passing these to a webserver can be counterfeited if the attacker has installed the app himself and then gained access to these variables. I thought of using the HTTP user agent but that can be customised by an attacker as well. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
