API Security Starter

API Security Starter showcases chapters from three Manning books chosen by author and digital security expert Neil Madden. You’ll start with an introduction to API security elements and take a look at security mechanisms including identification and authentication as well as access control and authorization. As you build a sample API project in the next chapter, you’ll see examples of attacks against APIs and learn how to guard against those attacks, applying basic secure development principles as you go. Next, you’ll zoom in on the importance of integrating security into the design and implementation of microservices. Last but not least, you’ll discover security-minded API design constructs. With the valuable lessons and best practices in this guide, you’ll have the skills you need to get started building secure APIs.
