Web Services and API Security
June 28, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Joe Schottman will be speaking for us this month on web service security.
Learn the basics of the common types of Web Services and APIs and how to test and secure them. An increasingly large portion of web server traffic is made up of API calls rather than conventional web traffic, from mobile applications to microservices to AJAX calls. This creates an expanded attack surface that is vulnerable to many of the same flaws as web applications that is sometimes less well defended.
This talk will cover REST, SOAP and custom APIs, covering common security mistakes and how testing them can vary from testing web applications. Many security tools offer their own APIs, so the talk will also cover how to use them to automate your own workflows.
Pizza and drinks will be provided.
