Introduction to the API Security Landscape

Presented by

Inon Shkedy

About this talk

The rapid rise of cloud-native applications, microservices, and mobile/IoT has lead to the wide-spread use of API's as the glue between all the components that make up the applications. These APIs are designed to share data and execution between services, which also makes them great attack vectors, as they have access to user data, execute business logic, are fairly transparent, and are wide-spread. Join Inon Shkedy, Traceable AI's Head of Security Research, as he introduces the new API security landscape and answers such questions as: - How do API's work? - Why are APIs so vulnerable? - Why are they so interesting to bad actors? - What API vulnerabilities should I watch out for?
