By nature, APIs expose application logic and sensitive data such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII). In addition, new microservices architectures with individual application components have become de facto APIs that significantly expand the attack surface. This course focuses on strategies and solutions used to mitigate APIs’ unique vulnerabilities and security risks.
On successful completion of this course, learners should have the knowledge and skills required to:
- Define, identify, and create a plan for managing resources
- Understand uncontrolled resource consumption and the associated risks
- Identify the common causes that lead to a lack of resources
- Implement industry best practices to mitigate API’s lack of resources and rate limiting
