Neosec covers all top 10 OWASP API vulnerabilities (blog)

Digital transformation is driving the tremendous increase in API deployments, enabling organizations to stay relevant and accelerate their business. APIs present new security risks because APIs differ from software that face common threats:

  • APIs are published without any control over their use by customers, opening up a mechanism for abuse.
  • Many API use cases are machine-to-machine communications, which makes bot protections less effective.
  • Organizations’ API domains are constantly changing as part of CI/CD strategies.

API Security Challenges and Neosec

API security presents several security challenges: First, many security teams lack experience with APIs or their vulnerabilities. Second, the rapid growth of API deployments is compromising visibility into the API landscape. Finally, APIs face both vulnerabilities and abuse. For the first, we can focus our attention on the top 10 vulnerabilities in the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) API. The top 10 OWASP API vulnerabilities are detected by the Neosec platform using a combination of signature matching and behavioral detection patterns.
