This RUBY library allows you to use TextKey's REST API calls server-side from a Java backend. TextKey is an omni-factor authentication API that uses seven-factors of authentication to provide security for devices ranging from mobile to electronic door locks. TextKey works through using SMS service, unique code, cellular number, UDID, a single use URL, and an optional pin. TextKey uses Rest with a JSON response and SOAP. TextKey is free for ten users, and available for a monthly charge per user thereafter.
The explosive growth of social media, cloud computing and mobile devices is making Web APIs the primary interface for technology-driven products and services, and placing more and more attention on the emerging “API economy.” And with 50 percent of B2B collaboration predicted to take place through APIs by 2016, we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg.
ProgrammableWeb first covered Point.io last year when the Point.io API was released. The original API gave mobile apps access to data from multiple cloud storage providers. Point.io has expanded its single point of access approach with the release of APIdoc. APIdoc provides a single API that grants any application access to data that resides in a public cloud, private cloud, behind a firewall, or elsewhere. While providing seamless access to multiple data repositories, APIdoc ensures security for compliance and auditing purposes.
