As enterprises invest heavily in web API strategies, they must rethink security, incorporating concepts like OAuth, OpenID Connect, and the API Security Maturity Model. Much of these advancements in API security boils down to how you handle identity. In Identity and APIs, we discover the techniques to secure platform access and delegate access throughout a mature API ecosystem.
