I'm building a system where it is absolutely critical that there is no way for a user to see a message that they're not supposed to. I want to use selectors to filter messages to each user, but the problem is that selectors are specified in the code that lives on the client. That means that in theory, a user could decompile their client and remove the selector condition I put there, and get messages they shouldn't be seeing, which would be catastrophic. I would like to be able to specify on the server what a client's selectors are, so they can never have a chance at modifying them. Does anyone have a strategy or idea to do this?

Hi John... Unfortunately, I think you answered your own question by stating the limitations of selectors. The alternative design would be to use unique topic names generated by the computer (more difficult to guess).
