OPEN TALK (API): API Security Is an Application Problem. Here’s Why.
Jeremy Snyder
Jeremy Snyder
FireTail, Founder

All of the attack vectors against APIs to date have exploited application logic failings. In this talk, we'll examine the most important app constructs to ensure API security, and discuss approaches to building more secure APIs.

We'll examine select breaches in each of the main categories - authentication, authorization, enumeration and injection, and draw some conclusions about which layer of security is most relevant in each.

We'll then discuss ways that organizations can both design and monitor APIs for best practices in security.

Having accurate and complete documentation for your APIs is necessary, but can also be quite challenging and time consuming. GraphQL, however, with its schema definition and the variety of tools that can access and explore that schema, does not have to be. See how our open-source project SpectaQL can help you keep your documentation complete, current and beautiful with the least amount of pain possible.
