The emergence of the Application Economy, where the application becomes the primary point of contact between the business and the customer, is made possible through the use of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to link front-end applications to back-end information systems. But many of the security threats that plague the web can be even more of a problem for APIs. This presentation explains the potential risks of APIs and highlights the three most common forms of attack.
The SlideShare is based on a recent eBooklet published by Scott Morrison of CA, Five Simple Strategies for Securing Your APIs http://bit.ly/1rjEhBd, which not only goes into much greater detail on the threats but lays out five simple steps that organizations should be taking today to reduce their risk.
