What Security Guidelines we follow to secure your API’s:
Enforce HTTPS / TLS connection:
We provide an option to enforce the use of HTTP over SSL in API requests, which transfer your credentials securely.
Input Parameter Validation to prevent injections:
Validate request parameters on the very first step, before it reaches your API Server. Our strong validation checks blocks the access immediately if input validation fails, which helps to prevent SQL injection and other attacks.
We support the input validation specified by OWASP REST Security guidelines.
Timestamp in Request:
Along with other request parameters, we provide option to add a request timestamp as HTTP custom header in API request. The server will compare the current timestamp to the request timestamp, and only accepts the request if it is within the allowed timeframe (60-300 seconds). This will prevent replay attacks from attackers who are trying to brute force your system without changing this timestamp.
Digitally Sign API requests and responses:
We support API requests and responses in signed manner as a added security.
API call with digitally signed requests make sure that API requests are coming from the trusted partner or client.
We protect your APIs with rate-limiting to mitigate distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks and protecting the backend applications that process the API calls.
