Rest API Security

Rest API Security

An API that is exposed to the outside is always vulnerable to attack. You can protect yourself from attacks by implementing access restrictions.

How do API attacks occur?

Brute-Force Method

With the brute-force method, bots make repeated login attempts through login endpoint on the API from different IP addresses until the process is successful. While measures such as IP-based restrictions are taken, they cannot completely protect against this.

SQL Injection

It is one of the attack methods commonly used in applications that work connected to a database. The attack tries to include the parameters sent through the QueryString or other means in the SQL query. If successful, it can bypass authentication processes and interfere with the data in the database. Depending on the level of the security vulnerability, it can erase all data in the database or back up the data in a way that it can access.

DDOS Attacks

DDOS attacks aim to prevent the system from responding by making a large number of instant requests that exceed the capacity that the system can handle. It is not necessary for there to be a code-level security vulnerability for these attacks. If a DDOS attack is successful, the attacked server(s) will be unable to respond and will experience downtime.

By using Protect Remote, only users who are permitted will be able to access web applications that require limited access, so the attacker will not even have a chance to attack a place they cannot access. All attacks by bots will be immediately terminated when you activate the relevant security.
