Validate Apple Unique Device ID
Posted on 2010-11-28
Good day experts,
If this question is in-violation of any of the rules here, let me know. Thank you.
I am asked to explore Apple iPhone applications and we hope to track unique users for the purpose of one account per user. (Who doesn't use an Apple device these days)
Please do not laugh at me. I am not Apple trained and now it is a good time for me to explore. *looks around sheepishly*
From my rudimentary readings on the internet, I am aware each apple device has a unique device Id that I may use to validate user accounts..
I have some queries I hope some experts here may shed some light.
1) Does iMac, Macbook, iPod, Apple Tv contains the Apple Unique device ID or is the Apple Unique device Id only applicable for iPhone/iPad?
2) Are there any documentations from Apple which I can read up more from?
3) What is the best way to validate a Apple Unique Device Id to ensure it is not a spoofed ID?
4) Is the Apple Unique Device ID algorithm open to public? Is it possible to generate/spoof your own IDs?
