APIs are the backbone of modern web applications. Whether they be used as a access point for AJAX queries, mobile apps, 3rd party integrations or just general data feeds, your applications’ API often needs the ability to access everything. Securing the API consequently is essential to the security of your application. This talk will cover the various types of APIs common in web applications, the security issues relevant with the various API types and methods for securing your APIs, and slowing down the hackers.
