This Threat Intelligence Java Sample Code demonstrates querying the SSL Certificates Chain API service via the Threat Intelligence Platform. The Threat Intelligence SSL Certificates Chain API allows you to get detailed information about an SSL Certificate and the complete SSL Certificates chain, for a given domain name. The data is provided in JSON format and returns an ordered collection of all SSL certificates present in the SSL Certificates chain. The Threat Intelligence API’s provide a way to integrate intelligence analysis insights, using Threat Intelligence data sources to gain knowledge of the target host and crucial threat detection for any system.
Security is of paramount importance in applications. APIs are the cornerstone of most applications today and ensuring that the data flowing through the API calls is secure cannot be overemphasized. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) has been available to us for years now and Google has made the first moves in using SSL across its suite of products with a plan to rolling out SSL for most of its developer APIs in the latter part of the year.
Security researchers have discovered a secret API in Microsoft Office 365 that gives investigators access to detailed information about activities that take place within Office 365. It makes available information about attachment, read and search activities, along with a variety of metadata.
Attackers know that API calls originating from inside an app are a blueprint for the infrastructure inside your data center. Further, they can use those same API calls to hide their malicious purposes, like a Trojan horse ready to slip through the front door. Apps are the new emerging threat vector.
