The Nymi iOS SDK allows developers to create applications for the Nymi wristband. The Nymi band aims to allow individuals with persistent identity via authentication using a uder's unique ECG. The SDK allows developers to use "native" and "net" flavors of the Nymi Communication Library. The native flavor is for directly interacting with physical Nymis, and the net flavor allows interaction with a Nymi ecosystem daemon (ecodaemon). The Nymi iOS SDK is written in Objective-C.
We here at ProgrammableWeb see a lot of APIs. Many of them are pretty secure, and some sadly are not. So, what makes an API secure? Well, I'm glad you asked. There are a lot of things one can do to improve the security of an API. Below I'll outline three simple practices that make up a good start for a secure API.
This is the ninth part of ProgrammableWeb’s series, Understanding the Realities of API Security based on testimony by ProgrammableWeb’s David Berlind to the ONC’s API Security and Privacy Task Force. This part looks at how certification authorities could help to instill API consumer confidence.
