Take a look at this info but without being able to sanitize your input via some sort of encryption/cryptography there isnt a valid option to prevent these. MITM attacks are pretty rare and require someone who actually knows how to hack and social engineer people. I would be more worried about preventing the attacks the script kiddies can hit you with, dumb stuff like cross-site session jacking, sql injections, stuff of that nature is much easier to safeguard against.
