APIs bring tremendous value to businesses in every sector. API traffic is growing exponentially at 30% year-on-year. However, the security model for APIs is problematic. What are the issues facing CISOs trying to secure their APIs? In this article, you will learn about the current issues and how to tackle them.
In this article, we’ll explore how users can secure Kubernetes by discussing the four essential pillars for secure access to K8s, go over how zero-trust principles can be applied to Kubernetes, and look at best practices to create and maintain end-to-end zero-trust K8s environments across data centers, public clouds, and even the edge.
We spoke with Borya Shakhnovich, CEO of airSlate, about the capabilities of no-code solutions and how they help empower non-technical business users. Borya Shakhnovich discusses some tips and things to consider when developing APIs and how airSlate overcame challenges during API development.
For the uninitiated, a Software Development Kit (SDK) is a set of software-building tools that streamline development for a specific platform. This article focuses on an SDK for Java in particular, which consists of three libraries: Stargate SDK, Astra SDK, and Spring Boot SDK.
You can attend the Serverless Architecture Conference and the API Conference either on-site in The Hague or remotely from your home office on April 4 – 6, 2022. Learn from innovators and experts in their field, discover best practices, and expand your horizons about serverless and API tech.
Developers want to concentrate on what they do best: building applications; and they want to reduce tasks that pull them away from development. Data gateways make it easier for developers to work with data, without getting bogged down in the details of managing schema, data migrations, and other database administration tasks.
You can attend the Serverless Architecture Conference and the API Conference either on-site in The Hague or remotely from your home office on April 4 – 6, 2022. Learn all about best practices from the experts, attend sessions, keynotes, and workshops, and network with professionals in your field!
Your company’s approach to APIs should be central to any vision of best practices. However, the emergence of multiple protocols and tools has brought challenges to maintaining API quality and consistency. Many teams lack confidence in developing consistent, secure, and high-quality APIs.
We spoke with Daniel Bryant about how API gateways have evolved, what impact microservices has on APIs, service meshes, and more. What are the biggest challenges when deploying and working with API gateways and what helpful tips does Daniel Bryant offer?
It’s that time again, time to browse the GitHub trending page and pick the best, coolest, or most impressive open source projects we encounter. During the summer of 2020 we took a look at a list of public APIs, a privacy-protection project, an open source chat app, and more.
We sat down with Greg Schier, tech lead at Kong and the creator of Insomnia, to understand the importance of this solution to developers working with APIs. Find out about its benefits to developers, and how a “spec-first” design to APIs helps.
With geolocation-based API request routing, the geographic location from which the request originates is mapped to an API gateway residing in one of the configured regions. Follow these geolocation best practices.
Most APIs built today are considered REST APIs these days, when in fact they merely exchange data via HTTP and JSON. At the same time, systems almost never act autonomously but rather live alongside others. In that context, being able to evolve an API becomes a crucial aspect in its design and the only knee-jerk, but often problematic reaction usually is: versioning.
“API calls are either successful or they fail” – at least that’s the concept current web protocols are based upon. But in the real world, it isn’t always that simple. Watch André Cedik’s API Conference session and learn about deeper complexities and use cases that aren’t as clear cut.
