I also want to protect against people trying to 'play' with sessions
from other users. If people get randomly disconnected because someone is
triggering disconnects I'm going to get support calls and complaints. 

Since the login redirect to the gateway will always use http and
typically an unencrypted wireless network is used I have to assume that
the IP address, MAC address and token for all users are known.
