Single purpose API
Earlier this month, the Huffington Post announced the release of the HuffPost Pollster API, which provides developers programmatic access to the results of thousands of political opinion polls gathered and published by the Huffington Post.
The Cloud Security Alliance Summit brought together a panel of security experts on February 27 in San Francisco to examine the threats posed by API and cloud-based computing. But rather than providing guidance on how to mitigate security risks they focused instead on the uncertain nature of security in an environment that is increasingly dominated by applications that use APIs to transfer data across the cloud.
