A write-up of the top API security vulnerabilities according to OWASP and mitigating approaches.
There is a spectrum of API security implementations, and not all of them are equal. The model describes API security in ever-increasing levels of trust, complexity, and efficiency.
API security encompasses the practices, processes, and products used to ensure APIs are secure, data can be transferred safely, and malicious attacks are prevented. APIs power the connectivity of the digital world. They offer faster integrations and increased freedom of choice when it comes to products. Keeping APIs, and the data provided through them, safe and only available to the intended user is a must. In this section we have gathered information covering the most important aspects of securing APIs and microservices.
