I have an URL which is allowed another server to post the request to and passing some parameters with values. For example, http://mydomain/site?cid=123

I will check the client's ip when the request is post to this URL.  If the IP is correct, do the database update else ignore it.  
My question here is if I need SSL to secure the URL.  It looks like SSL is not really useful in this situation, doesn't it?
