security with dedicated server

We are constructing a first person shooter and we wish to give out a dedicated server program. The only problem is that we have a razing system and we don't want people to hаck our dedicated servers and level themselves up. The way it is set up currently is that the dedicated server connects to our main servers and report kills and such which we record to their profiles. So I guess my question is how do we check to make sure that the dedicated servers have not been altered when they connect to our main servers? Does that make sense?

not sure what is "razing system"

how to prevent that? it depends on what kind of access people have to the server. is it just web based access into some php application?

restrict that access, you will need programmer who will check the application against security holes

I can only tell that you have to tight the security on both hardware/software protection such as firewall/antivirus etc. More important is the coding, your programmer must do needful tests to make sure its secure enough.

To make your server secure, please just only allow IP from certain IP address. So, only that IP address that allow to access the server. You may ask your programmer to check it for you

You can use CRC or some sort of hashing algorithm to see the servers have not been altered. But I am not surer what exactly need?
