Send back a challenge that is based on  a "hidden" value which is stored only at the box and never sent to the web site.

In the browser at the box, combine the challenge mathimatically with the hidden value and return the result with the order.

In the web server, combine the challenge with what we think the hidden value is and compare that to the result send with the order.
