Why Following the Robustness Principle with Your APIs Might Be a Good Idea

Sat, 20 May 2017 13:30:39 -0400

When you break your monolith up into microservices connected by exposed APIs, you expect these services to be decoupled and independently releasable. But too often they still aren’t. Jose Luis Ordiales Coscia over at the Klarna blog explains how to fix this problem with the robustness principle.

Why SaaS and On-Prem Software Providers Should Think API-First

Tue, 16 May 2017 13:56:02 -0400

Software is great — you write it once, and it just keeps on working forever with no changes. Except, of course, this is not true. It's always evolving, getting new features, and serving new audiences. The promise of software and the reason there are so many businesses built around it is that you can continue to solve your problems in the right way, by upgrading. Upgrade your software a couple times, though, and all of a sudden you have a legacy product.

New Snafus Illustrate Scope of API Security Challenge and Hacker Tenacity

Fri, 12 May 2017 16:01:29 -0400

Though it's hard to imagine anything rising above the noise coming out of Washington, DC this week, the InterWebs have managed to surface two separate issues that further illustrate several of the important realities of API security. To be clear, API security is very hard. There are a multitude of layers to the so-called API "stack" (eg: the API endpoint itself, the applications that access the API, the network between them, etc.) some of which overlap the layers of an organization's basic IT stack.

How APIs Are the Backbone of New IoT Standards

Thu, 11 May 2017 18:26:27 -0400

The Internet of Things (IoT) is supposed to have 10 times the impact of the Web itself, which means it has potentially 10 times the risk for complication, and, with its ubiquity, 10 times the risk to security. Each "Thing" we encounter in our daily and professional lives could potentially be connected within the next couple years. And with so many, many more players, manufacturers, protocols, and programming languages, it all gets exponentially more complicated.
