SXSW 2019

Secure APIs Development Workshop


API's are awesome! API's provide programmability & stickiness to products and services. The most important aspect of developing APIs in critical infrastructure products is to ensure that overall service security is maintained. It is often difficult to ensure that new API's do not increase the threat surface or introduce any new vulnerabilities into current or future services. Customers and partners are depending on you to minimize this vulnerability exposure risk as they adopt programmability. This hands-on workshop session is designed to create a security-first mindset as you develop and test new API's.

Other Resources / Information


  1. Learn about API threat analysis process - helps identify vulnerabilities due to design, how we address them during API design, development and testing
  2. Security is a huge challenge in an increasingly connected world. Gain practical knowledge on how to better secure APIs and minimize vulnerability.
  3. Learn how to establish a secured code development process for your APIs and how to choose your API authentication schemes (Outh, token…etc).
