# Exploring the Anatomy of API Security #
If you have not been living inside a cave for the past 5 years, you definitely are using at least 5 web applications that are vital to your day-to-day activities. With the talk about applications, APIs are not far behind in the world of developers and IT enthusiasts. APIs have become ubiquitous – when we order food online, hail a cab using an app on our phone, or book airline tickets, APIs are behind it.

As a user, you trust that the app providers ensure a reliable, efficient, and secure modern infrastructure behind the application. As an app provider, though, it’s not that simple, but not impossible.

In this Special Div0 Meetup, we will explore:
(1) API gateway deployment patterns in a microservices, and multi-cloud world
(2) How secure is secure in this API economy
(3) Live demo of Kubernetes sidecar proxy deployment
