The Guerrilla API Node.js SDK by Bruno Krebs is a node module that wraps the Guerrilla API. It can assist in smoothing the communication of apps/ modules with the Guerrilla service. Developers can use the Guerrilla API to create their own Guerrilla Mail website or application, or integrate Guerrilla Mail with their own applications. Guerrilla Mail is an anti-spam solution, where a user is given a temporary Email address which they can use without the need of disclosing personal information.
Email, which is one of the oldest services available on the internet, is a key mechanism via which you can reach out to your users. Over the last year, the number of services providing this infrastructure as a service has grown to include 6 email sending APIs. The newest, Amazon Simple Email Service, validates the market.
Yelp spent two years developing a bug-bounty program with Hackerone, which led to over 100 resolved reports. Now, Yelp is taking the program to the broader public to engage a wider set of security researchers. The program offers bounties starting at $100 and can pay up to $15,000.
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.
