API Security Best Practices and Guidelines

Thursday, October 22, 2020


Modern enterprises are increasingly adopting APIs, exceeding all predictions. With more businesses investing in microservices and the increased consumption of cloud APIs, you need to secure beyond just a handful of well-known APIs. You will need to secure a higher number of internal and external endpoints.

At the same time, security itself is a broad area and vendors implement a number of seemingly similar standards and patterns, making it very difficult for consumers to settle on the best option for securing APIs. The sheer number of options can be very confusing.

There is much to learn about API security, regardless of whether you are a novice or expert and it’s extremely important that you do because security is an integral part of any development project, including API ecosystems.

This webinar will deep-dive into the importance of API security, API security patterns, and how identity and access management (IAM) fit in the ecosystem.

During the webinar, we will cover:

  • Managed APIs
  • OAuth 2.0 and API security patterns
  • Introduction to WSO2 Identity Server
  • How we align with OWASP API security guidelines

Recommended for:

  • IAM app and full stack developers
  • Enterprise, product, and IAM and solution architects
