Hello !
Am making a small project using Yahoo Games Network SDK,so i was making like "inventory" where the character would change stuff on,i successfully made it with BigDB but as all know its pretty hackable,so i wanna switch to PayVault but i can't find any subject have relation with my situation.

The only secure option for a system like that is to do it in multiplayer serverside code, backed by BigDB. PayVault is the wrong choice for a system like that, and doesn't magically make it more secure.

For performance issue, my strategy is:

1. Only limited access to BigDB: ReadOnly to the player, and load by Keys only allowed. Also, only some Tables are allowed to the client.
2. All Update / Save / game logic operation on BigDB or Payvault are managed by Multiplayer code.

It seem a good balance to me, between performance issue and security.
