Providing an Application Programming Interface (or API) has become a crucial piece of the modern web application. API’s provide opportunities to build the ecosystem around your application, opening doors for collaboration and innovative mashups. However, the API opens up another entry point into your application, requiring that you somehow secure the access to it.

This talk will outline some of the options you have when securing your API. I’ll give overviews and implementation tips on some of the more popular schemes such as OAuth, HTTP authentication, and generating API keys. We’ll also look at some general API best practices such as rate limiting, error handling, and secure data communication.
