What distinguishes API security from general application security?
Here are some significant features of API security that set it apart from conventional security:
Traditionally, conventional networks had to defend just popular ports such as 80 (HTTP) and 443. (HTTPS). Today's online apps have several API endpoints that employ various protocols. As APIs tend to expand over time, even one API might make security problematic.
Most service or microservice APIs are accessed using mobile applications and other services. Web security technologies cannot employ browser verification since these clients do not use a browser. It is sometimes tricky to exclude artificial traffic from API endpoints in solutions that rely on browser verification to detect dangerous bots.
APIs snowball in a DevOps context, and most WAFs (Web Application Firewalls) cannot support this flexibility. Traditional security tools require manual tweaking and reconfiguration every time an API changes, which is an error-prone procedure that costs resources and time.
Ease of Creating Tests
Microminder provides developers and testers with automated tools and frameworks to validate and verify user interfaces, APIs, and databases.
Increased Test Coverage
We run tests with real-world data on virtualised infrastructure, actual browsers, or generated data.
At Micromindder, we specialise in API testing services to keep your web services safe from threats and data leaks. Our experts use the latest tools and techniques to identify potential security issues before they become a real problem.
Microminder's step-by-step approach to API/ Web Services Security Testing
SOAP and REST are two fundamental architectural paradigms in modern APIs.
SOAP is a highly organised communications system that supports various low-level protocols. REST is a more straightforward approach to APIs that uses HTTP/S as the transport protocol and JSON format for data transmission.
We configure the servers, databases, and every resource with which the API interacts, depending on the software requirements.
To plan API tests, we must first define testing boundaries and requirements. We answer questions concerning the API's purpose, intended customers, and testing goals.
We then ensure that nothing is broken and the API is working.
Further, we make a list of all potential input combinations. And then, use them in test cases to authenticate the results and determine if the API works as expected.
After completing all the preparations, we design and execute test cases before comparing the actual outcomes to the predicted ones.
We bring intelligence and mindset together.
