API Security

This section consits of best practices, security checklists, common vulnerability writeups and other API security related content.

API security is the protection of the integrity of APIsβ€”both owned and in-use API services. APIs are one of the most common ways that microservices and containers communicate including systems and associated applications. As integration and interconnectivity become more important, APIs play a vital part in the security of these microservices.

In this section, we will include content that will reflect best security practices including but not limited to the following content:

  • API Security Checklist

  • API Security Assessment Tools

    • Summary and Usage of these Tools

  • API Common Vulnerability Blocks

I will try my best to update each of these sections with the latest updates and references, on the best opportunities as possible.
