Web API security recommendations

With an increasing demand to build modern web and mobile apps, web APIs have become essential to empower these applications, with an easy way to communicate with the data access layer. This should be accompanied by proper security measures to protect web APIs. In addition to the security recommendations we discussed in the previous section, here are some essential tips to secure your web API:

  • Consider using the latest Transport Layer Security (TLS) version to encrypt communication between the app and the server.
