API stands for Application Programming Interface, and it is used to connect various software systems, applications, and devices together, by allowing them to communicate with one another. This unlocks many benefits, ranging from enhanced user experiences to increased business efficiency. However, API Hacking and exploitation is on the rise.


The most common advantages of APIs include:

  • Automation: APIs can be used to automate repetitive, time consuming work so that humans can focus on more complex tasks. This improves productivity, especially for developers and testers.
  • Innovation: Public APIs can be used by external engineering teams, which spurs innovation and accelerates development by enabling developers to repurpose existing functionality to create new digital experiences.
  • Security: APIs can provide an additional layer of protection against unauthorized breaches by requiring authentication and authorization for any request to access sensitive data.
  • Cost efficiency: APIs provide access to useful third-party tools and infrastructure, which helps businesses avoid the expense of building complex in-house systems.

Examples of API Application:

  • Used by Google MAP,
  • Making a request for a ride
  • Making payment through a payment App like Venmo
  • Flight Booking, etc.


API Hacking; Why Attackers target APIs:

  • Direct Access to Sensitive Data
  • Vulnerable to logic flaws
  • Over Permission


Securing APIs:

In this API training, You will learn detailed tools and techniques for analyzing, testing and identifying API vulnerabilities. Additionally, you will also learn API reconnaissance, scanning, auditing JSON Web Tokens, performing authentication and authorization tests, and exploiting other common API weaknesses like injection, mass assignment, and server-side request forgery.

How To Stop Attackers From Hacking Your APIs:

  • Secure Operation of Web Interfaces
  • Regular Penetration Testing
  • Rapid Review and Remediation of Findings, and lots more.
