Why not start with the follwoing lines:

if (!defined ('PATH_typo3conf')) die ('Could not access this script directly!');

in js you just acess index.php

       	url: baseURL+"index.php",               // watch for  RealURL!
       	type: "post",                    // Typ3 of posting
        data: {
            	eID: "name of my_eID",       //the id you gave your eID

That protects your eID, doesnt it?
