You could get each device's unique identifier and append it in the
request, make your api so that they only response to requests that have
valid UUID, or even implement an access control list according to your need.

Hi
I recently joined a company which is developing a game/app for iOS.
Game needs some intensive server side processing. Also, they want the
game to be popular as soon as possible so there are no security
requirements to sign up or set up a user account(userid/pwd). They just
want user to download and start playing.
How do you secure server resources(say REST services) in this
environment? Every approach i think of, has a security flaw, because
fundamentally anything you store on client side(hardcode in code or
config files, encryption keys etc) to communicate with server side
resources, it can be retrieved.
May be I am missing something fundamental. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks
Naveen
