Cyber attackers are targeting the application programming interfaces (APIs) used by businesses to share data with customers. Consumer mobile adoption, electronic goods and services, and high volumes of data have led businesses to use APIs for data exchange. Unfortunately, attackers can also use APIs to access or deny service to valuable data and systems. This white paper explores strategies for protecting APIs. You’ll learn about APIs, how and why these endpoints are targets for web application attacks, security models, and how Akamai can help.

The discovery of the Heartbleed bug in April, 2014 exposed a serious vulnerability in OpenSSL, an open-source cryptographic library often used with applications and web servers like Apache and Nginx. This latest high profile, targeted attack allowed infiltrators access to the memory of web servers running vulnerable versions of the library. Heartbleed quickly compromised the privacy for communications applications on the Web such as e-commerce, banking, email, and instant messaging, and opened the door to the interception of user information, passwords, and identities. While the world now knows of the widespread havoc Heartbleed has caused to both businesses and individuals, it begs the question, “What happens when the next Heartbleed (or worse) comes along, and what can an organization do to weather yet another chapter in an all-too-familiar string of debilitating attacks?

When most people think of denial of service (DoS) attacks, they think of the large pipe-saturating distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks aimed at the network layer. However, attacks on website or application availability are not just volumetric in nature. Many attacks are designed to cause resource exhaustion somewhere in the application stack, the application servers, middleware, or back-end database.
