In this, webinar, we cover API security: encryption, authentication, and authorization. We will be covering how secure API design starts with you and how you should be thinking like a villain when setting up security. 


Modern software development requires a deep understanding of API-based development. But do you understand how to go about securing an API? The API security process starts with API design. If you wait until you've already created your API to think about security, you're fighting an uphill battle in trying to plug security holes that you could have prevented in the first place.

In this webinar, we discuss security concerns with APIs and focus on 3 specific topics: the onion model, industry best practices, and "how to think like a bad guy" and the Thrifty APIs we built in part one of our webinar series: Generating Revenue With Hybrid Cloud Applications And On-premise Data.

We're pleased to offer this webinar replay. Let us know your thoughts about hybrid cloud applications by providing your comments or reaching out to us!
