Hi Chino,

Could you please explain your architecture in more detail? So far it looks 
like you're protecting the Internet from your application, and not vice versa. 
AFAIK, most API don't do callbacks, so you don't need to expose your app to 
the outside callers. Simply permit outgoing connections in your firewall.
