Securing APIs with WSO2 API Manager and Okta

Tuesday, August 11, 2020

API security is a vital part of API management when exposing your APIs to the public. Although the WSO2 API Manager comes with an inbuilt OAuth 2.0 based key manager, some organizations tend to utilize their own identity provider for this purpose. Therefore, it is vital that an API management platform supports integration with third-party key managers and OAuth 2.0 providers.

In previous versions of our API manager, connecting a third-party key manager required extensions and customizations to the product. Our latest release allows users to connect well known third-party key managers without any development work. You can simply add a set of configurations and connect the WSO2 API Manager to your favorite key management server.

By attending this webinar, you will gain hands-on experience on how WSO2 API Manager can be leveraged to use Okta as a third-party key management platform by following a simple setup procedure.

During the webinar, we will cover:

  • API security and the importance of it
  • The role of a key manager in the API management runtime
  • OAuth 2.0 based API security and usage of it in WSO2 API Manager
  • Overview of support for different key management servers
  • Integrating Okta with WSO2 API Manager as a key manager

Recommended for:

  • Architects
  • API Developers
