This is the sixth part of ProgrammableWeb’s series on Understanding the Realities of API Security based on testimony by ProgrammableWeb’s editor-in-chief David Berlind to the ONC’s API Security and Privacy Task Force. This part considers how many API and third party app deployments exist.
The World Wide Web can be a charlatan's playground with the potential of accessing reams of personal details and passwords to exploit as they please. Of course, there are secure solutions in place and we can all do our bit to ensure our information remains safe, but in some cases, fraud manages to succeed. Socure is an identity fraud detection service aimed at providing organisations or website owners with the tools to help prevent fraud and ensure that their customers are who they say they are. Socure's API makes it possible to integrate this functionality into websites and applications.
