Chris Cornutt: Securing Your REST API

  • November 12, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • SoftLayer Offices

This month we'll have co-organizer Chris Cornutt presenting some things you can do (and not do) to help secure your APIs:


With APIs becoming the de-facto standard for getting things done on the web, it's more important than ever to provide the right kind of security for your application. The options can be overwhelming with things like OAuth, signed queries, shared certificates and token authentication just to name a few. I'll go through these and some of the questions you'll need to ask as you think about protecting your API and the data that lies within.


Where: SoftLayer Offices on Alpha

When: Tuesday, November 12th @ 7pm

Who: Chris Cornutt

Come join us for an evening of learning and hanging out with fellow developers. Food and drinks will be provided thanks to our sponsors SoftLayer.

    Did the recordin work? I'd love to watch it. My daughter ended up running a fever, so leaving the house wasn't an option. Especially mixing with others as I don't know if she's contagious.
