Securing Bing Maps key in WebControl V8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We've run into issues in the past where our Bing Maps key was scraped from Javascript source code and used by other sites, so we moved to some custom server-side code to protect it.  Unfortunately, we do operate an ISV SaaS (properly licensed as such), so using the new domain/referrer-based security would be challenging (and entirely manual) maintenance.

    Is there no other way to secure the key while also using the V8 web control?  We proxy all of our REST-based calls server-side to hide the key, but because the web control requires it in plaintext in the browser (in its constructor), there doesn't seem to be any way to prevent another site/developer from stealing our key (again).
