Secure Your REST API... The Right Way

Secure Your REST API... The Right Way | nodeJS and Web APIs | Scoop.it

We already showed you how to build a Beautiful REST+JSON API, but how do you secure your API?  At Stormpath we spent 18 months researching best practices, implementing them in the Stormpath API, and figuring out what works. Here’s our playbook on how to secure a REST API.

3Scale Launches Open Source API Proxy Built On NGNIX

3Scale Launches Open Source API Proxy Built On NGNIX | nodeJS and Web APIs | Scoop.it

3Scale just launched a new open source API proxy build on the NGNIX web server technology--a move, I feel is important for 3Scale, as well as the entire API industry.

 

In addition to the benefits provided by NGNIX, the proxy provides seamless integration with 3Scale’s API management platform that delivers:
- API business modeling using service contracts, API rate limits and pricing rules
- API access control & security with API key generation with user id, app id, oAuth
- API analytics & reporting including alerts, statistics, business intelligence
- API billing & payments supporting pre-paid, post-paid, PCI compliant, six separate payment gateways
- Developer portal for self-service registration and onboarding
- Interactive API Documentation for better adoption using Swagger

Combining HTML Hypermedia APIs and Adaptive Web Design

Combining HTML Hypermedia APIs and Adaptive Web Design | nodeJS and Web APIs | Scoop.it

HTML is the lowest common denominator in a world were the number of devices are steadily growing. In such a world, our API should be hypermedia driven and we should consider choosing HTML as the media type for our APIs. If we choose this, we can enhance the API with CSS and JavaScript, making the API human-friendly as well. Further, we can use Adaptive Web Design to make the best possible experience for all types of browsers and devices.

 

This kind of solution has some risks and technical issues related to it though. And it is not a silver bullet.

Cloud Storage APIs for the next generation Enterprise

Cloud Storage APIs for the next generation Enterprise | nodeJS and Web APIs | Scoop.it

As the world shifts to computing on the cloud , or what my non tech friends call, lots of servers connected to the internet, APIs become increasingly the lingua franca or working language to communicate to and fro from these clouds. Storage in the cloud has been of the earliest use cases and one which has increasingly made sense to create secure backups at a much cheaper rate. So here is a collection of Cloud Storage APIs, as far as possible they are RESTful . Please note I am referring only to some of the biggest players in the cloud storage API space- and you may find others. But since the article is aimed at enterprise readers willing to park confidential content on the cloud, this is a list of the biggest cloud storage providers which offer API access.
