They are difficult to secure and determined hackers are extremely tenacious in finding ways to exploit them. Despite what some people — even experts — would lead you to believe, there are no silver bullets. That said, when proactively managed and secured, the efficacy of APIs greatly outweighs the risks associated with deploying them.

Identity Management for the Cloud

motif

I spent 2 years of my life working as an Identity Management (IdM) consultant a long time ago, when clouds were related to weather and SAAS sounded like the Scandinavian Airlines. The environment changed an now more and more companies are moving to the cloud relying on applications living outside their firewalls, but there’s something that didn’t change: The need to provision user accounts. This is the main reason why I will like to spend some of my free time the next months trying to build an IdM solution for the cloud on the cloud.
