To do so, they must move away from the early deployment model of REST APIs that were often authenticated by passwords.
This paper discusses new security specifications that provide the necessary authentication and authorization standards for REST APIs. Read this paper and learn:
Details about the new security standards and specifications
How to integrate new the standards and specifications into existing standards, such as SAML
How the new standards work to provide both API and identity and access management (IAM) security
