OAuth is becoming an increasingly important aspect of API security. For organizations that want to make their services available across the whole range of social media platforms and mobile devices, OAuth represents an essential tool for enabling user access and protecting user privacy. But it’s still an emerging technology that is, for the most part, quite poorly understood. What is more, actually implementing OAuth can be something of a challenge.
Our new white paper, A How-to Guide to OAuth & API Security, provides practical information and actionable advice on:
- What OAuth is and how it fits into a complete API security solution
- Why implementing OAuth can be a complex matter
- How you can make OAuth implementation simple for your organization
There are two very important lessons you’ll take away from this white paper. First, OAuth is emerging as a cornerstone of secure API publishing and enterprises will need to get to grips with it if they’re serious about protecting customers’ private data. Second, OAuth is not the be-all-and-end-all of API security. A complete, enterprise-grade API security solution will also have to deliver functionality for auditing, threat detection and so on.
