I need to call a Web Method on an API I am using, and will locate this call to the API, on the server side, so that the API keys can be hidden. But, I still need to make A call from the client, and could make a wrapper function which implements my own security, then calls to the API securely.

Since I will have control of both ends of my call, the Javascript client and my wrapper Web Method, what are my options?

I will not have the ability to lock down access to my HTML page, since my HTML/Javascript will be part of a larger page.

Thoughts?
