Web services APIs are a primary target for security attacks and the consequences can be catastrophic for both API providers and end users. Stolen passwords, leaked credit card numbers and revealed private messages and photos are just some of the headaches for those who have been compromised. Ole Lensmar shows how attackers break systems via Web service APIs with fuzzing, session spoofing, injection attacks, cross-site scripting and other methods. Ole teaches how these attacks work on an API and how to test an API to make sure it isn't vulnerable—without compromising the API.
Ole is the co-founder of eviware software, which joined forces with SmartBear in 2011, and the creator of SoapUI, the most used API testing tool in the world. He speaks frequently on the importance of API testing and other related topics. Follow Ole on Twitter @olensmar.
