To limit operations like IncrementExperiencePoints() to cloud code only. This will essentially take away the ability to make these calls from the bare client API. You can see a script that enforces these restrictions here - https://getbraincloud.com/apidocs/cloud-code-central/handy-cloud-code-scripts/restrictclientcalls-script/

RE: NodeJS setup question
Can you provide us with more details of your use case regarding your web interface? if you can write some validation handle code on your web interface server, you still can call all of brainCloud Client-API, unless you want the API directly be called from your client app through your web interface server without any validation code for that, if that is the case, you will have to use S2S for that. https://www.npmjs.com/package/brainclouds2s, it's kind of complicated than using https://www.npmjs.com/package/braincloud
