Secure APIs with FastAPI and the Microsoft Identity Platform Transcripts
Chapter: Welcome to the course
Lecture: API security
0:00 Let's talk a little bit about API security. What is API security you may ask?
0:06 Well API security is concerned with the confidentiality integrity and availability of your API's or CIA for
0:16 short. Confidentiality is about keeping your data private and secure from unauthorized users or applications.
0:23 Data should be accessed only once the appropriate permissions have been granted. Integrity on the other hand, ensures that the data is current,
0:34 correct and accurate, integrity also means that the data has not been modified during transmission.
0:41 And finally availability ensures that the data is available when requested via the API.
0:48 Cyberattacks work across these three principles in order to compromise a system and as a fun fact, the cyber crime was measured as a country.
0:59 Then in 2021 it is expected that damages inflicted by cyber attacks will total nearly $6
1:07 trillion, which would actually be the third largest economy after US and China.
1:12 On this course, we will learn how to use the max of identity platform to protect confidentaility of our FastAPI.
