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.
For music enthusiasts who thrive on insider knowledge and detailed music conversation, WhoSampled would be just their cup of tea. It's basically an online community for discovering and discussing sampled music, remixes and cover songs. WhoSampled has partnered with The Echo Nest to provide the WhoSampled API that allows developers to access and integrate its functionality with other applications.
