Data security in APIs with the "Shift Left" approach!
Data security in APIs is the most spoken during requirement, design, development, and post-production activities. Most of the time the data security is managed after the post-production activity using API gateways. How do we ensure that data security is followed with the "Shift Left" approach?
Here is the 5-tiered security architecture to ensure data is secure:
User profile-based security: Controlled data access at ROW and FIELD levels based on the user profile and enforce dynamic data masking at various levels to protect data visibility.
RBAC: Controlled API access in totality.
Payload Encryption: RSA Key pair based encryption ensures that only the receiver with the private key can decrypt the data
Secure Transfer: Leverage HTTPS to secure the data during network transfer
Metadata Encryption: Leverage complex encryption techniques like AES 256+salt-based security.
Implementing 5-tiered security takes time and effort. It is super simplified with simple configurations without any code for all the APIs generated using the Abstracta™ platform. Contact us today.
