Session

Criticality of identity: The importance of knowing who your API consumer is

Hans Zandbelt
Ping Identity

Enterprise businesses are increasingly exposing APIs to share valuable data and services with partners and customers. At the same time, they are using these APIs for mobile access. Securing those APIs is a tough task and the identity of the API consumer is critical in that. This session will present how to leverage customer and user identity to secure API access and will propose an implementation architecture to deal with it.

Topics will include:

  • Business drivers and requirements for securing APIs
  • Why you should centralize all of your cloud identity security
  • How to leverage and extend existing IdM infrastructure to secure API’s
