API Security – Today’s Virtual Moat
This blog takes a look at medieval methods to secure the castle – and how those methods actually translate directly to how modern enterprises protect their resources.
OAuth mTLS Adoption Challenges
This article discusses adoption challenges with OAuth mTLS, steps one can take to mitigate those challenges.
OAuth mTLS – An Introduction to Mutual TLS for APIs
This blog introduces mTLS and discusses the advantages of combining it with OAuth 2.0 for additional security.
GraphQL Schemas – From Design-time Introspection to Runtime Content Validation
This blog takes a look at GraphQL from a security perspective, and how to design a schema that meets CSO requirements.
Three Questions for API Change Management
Adam’s latest blog discusses API Change management and how it allows us to create a process or a set of rules that shapes the way the API grows as more endpoints are added and as existing functionality changes. He then discusses the three factors to consider whenever making changes to an API.
Anti-patterns in Microservices (Don’t Do These)
Microservices are a popular approach to software architecture that aim to break up monolithic code into maintainable chunks. These discrete chunks allow for continuous delivery of a service while developing on top of what is in production. That flexibility is exciting in an agile environment, but rushing into deploying your code as a suite of microservices can put you at risk of incorporating anti-patterns that may cause significant problems down the line. In this blog, Adam discusses four common pitfalls as you start building your own microservices.
What are API Anti-Patterns?
Software design patterns are the solutions used to tackle common software development problems. Design Patterns aren’t strictly required for running code but they are essential to avoiding problems in your code. In this article, Adam takes a look at the other side – anti-patterns – a sneaky but common poor software development technique.
Continuous API Management Requires Continuous API Documentation
In his latest blog, Adam discusses the importance of continuous API documentation as your API collection grows (and likely becomes more complex).
API Reliability: How SRE Yields Better APIs
In his latest article, Adam explores the role of the SRE as it relates to API strategy/design, and some of the advantages adopting this role brings to both APIs and business.
