This white paper identifies these threats, both old and new, and provides clear solutions to address them including:

  • Parameter attacks that exploit data sent into an API
  • Identity attacks that exploit flaws in authentication, authorization and session tracking
  • Interception of legitimate transactions to exploit unencrypted data
  • And more
