Protect your APIs and data with the powerful authorization solution from XecureAPI Gateway. With our API authorization solution, we strive to offer robust protection that allows controlled access and ensures the integrity of the data.

API Authentication

XecureAPI Gateway Authorization Process

Allow access to only authorized users to secure your application and resources with our robust API authorization process.

Our API Authorization Methods

Role-based API keys

Manage and control the access to APIs based on roles or permissions using our role-based API keys for API authorization.

  • You can define which roles and permissions are required to access your APIs in the API gateway.
  • Based on that we determine which roles are allowed to access which part of APIs.
  • Using API gateway we provide API keys based on roles and permissions, which can be further used for user verification.
  • When a user creates an API request with the API key, our gateway receives the request and verifies the roles or permissions associated with the API keys.
  • If all the roles or permissions are valid then access to the given resource, otherwise it is denied.

Implement our three-legged OAuth flow to manage and control different access levels and permissions.

  • A user initiates the process by creating an application in the API gateway, and our gateway will issue a client ID and client secret for further processing.
  • The client application initiates the flow by sending the client ID and client secret for verification to the gateway. It is subsequently redirected to the login page.
  • The user authenticates themselves and grants the consent screen. As a result, the gateway sends back the authorization code to the redirected URL.
  • The obtained code is then exchanged for an access token.
  • Next, when accessing the resources this user access token is sent along with the API request. API gateway verifies the access token validity and associated permissions.
  • If all checks out, the API gateway shares the requested resource data based on the granted permissions.


Use your LDAP server to manage and control access to your APIs based on the LDAP security groups with our LDAP Authorization.

  • You can define which LDAP security group a user should be a part of to access your APIs in our API gateway. Multiple security groups can also be configured, allowing fine-grained access control.
  • When a user initiates an API request, they authenticate themselves by sending their LDAP credentials.
  • The API gateway then performs user authentication and verifies whether the user is a member of the LDAP security group that has been configured for the requested API.
  • If all the conditions are satisfied, the user is given access to the requested resource data.
