Securing Public APIs and Mashups

Title

Securing Public APIs and Mashups

Presenter

Abstract

Today’s applications are expected to be open and be able to interface to others. While these Open API's are around for a while, the security around these is still confusing - and it should not be. This talk offers a deep dive on different options available to secure these public API’s - with examples, where to use, best practices, issues and lessons learned.
