There is still no way a server on the internet can know what is running
on the other end. The only into a build farm can add is the same as
someone sign the build to tell the user it's matching a source code

It's can however never protect the servers from any kind ofg hacked
viewers with extra functions as save all to disk, overlaod others
viewers. etc.
