OWASP Top 10 API: Strategies for Smart Developers

Download the practical guide to defeating common API security baddies in your code.

In this age of DevSecOps, continuous delivery, and more data paydirt than ever before, shrewd organizations are helping developers just like you upskill into security-aware superstars that assist in eliminating common vulnerabilities before they ever make it to production.

When you’re producing high-quality code without those annoying, show-stopping bugs, not only is it safer for the end-user, it means less rework and disruption for you.

The following chapters will focus on some of the worst security bugs as they relate to Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). These are so prevalent that they made the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) list of top API vulnerabilities. Given how important APIs are to modern computing infrastructures, these are critical problems that you need to keep out of your applications and programs at all costs.

Explore this all-new eBook to learn more about:

  • How each of the top 10 API vulnerabilities work, and how an attacker can exploit them
  • What they look like, and how you can fix them (with links to real, hands-on challenges!)
  • How to navigate security at speed in your day-to-day work.


Uplift your secure code skills systematically with 100% hands-on training in how to spot and fix vulnerabilities, in your choice of programming language and frameworks.

Build upon your experiences and skillset with the Secure Code Warrior skills platform and move beyond passive recall to active application of your knowledge. This unique preventative approach will help make security an intrinsic part of your thought process and workflow to produce quality software - fast!
