As more organizations adopt microservices architectures, API security becomes even more critical.
This talk will explore the unique challenges of securing APIs in a microservices environment and provide strategies for mitigating risks. Microservices architecture requires a fundamentally different approach to API security compared to traditional monolithic architectures.
In a monolithic architecture, security measures could be centralized and applied to the entire application, but in a microservices environment, security must be distributed across many APIs and services, each with their own unique security requirements and vulnerabilities. Specifically, this talk for the HITB CommSec Track will cover techniques such as implementing API gateways, service mesh architecture, authentication and authorization, and network segmentation to help secure microservices-based applications.
