Single purpose API
Of the many APIs we published this week, eleven were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eleven, which included the OneID API. OneID aims to end the problem that many people have with too many usernames and passwords. It does so by combing a users security keys into one big, encrypted "blob." Apparently this information is more secure than normal user authentication practices and is callable via the OneID API. Once a users information is in the blob, OneID authenticates a user when they are trying to log into a site by confirming three different digital signatures on different devices. To learn more about OneID functionality, visit the OneID site as well as the OneID API blog post.
Fourteen year-old SurveyMonkey is catching up with a newly-launched SurveyMonkey API to access user surveys and the data within them. It appears the time the company waited to expose its API was well spent. The initial offering includes OAuth and full survey response data.
