A whitepaper by Salt Security

The landscape of APIs has evolved substantially over the years to account for different business cases and consumption models. The broad landscape of API design patterns and API consumer types complicates security requirements for organizations. This reality makes arriving at sets of best practices challenging since it must be expansive and inclusive of many traditional security practices yet tailored for API use cases. Salt Security has compiled this list of API security best practices based on field experience and customer feedback.

Explore the whitepaper to find out top recommendations on:

  • Secure design and development
  • API documentation
