authentication to user sign up process

Hi, I develop backend for a mobile app. I'm looking for a mechanism to authenticate initial user sign up. the mechanism should be between the frontend and backend (REST interface) w/o user involved. the purpose of this authentication is preventing robots sign up or someone eavesdropping the communication between mobile app and the server, to copy the sign up. thanks for ideas

Yes, I use it for some of my projects, it is pretty straightforward to use (can be a bit complex for projects that want a complex authentication process), and it very customizable. You should definitely try learning how to use it, and integrate it into your project.
