Securing your API

You can add additional security to your APIs in several ways:

  • Create TLS profiles to secure transmission of data,

  • Authenticate and secure your APIs with a User Registry,

  • Configure an OAuth Provider,

  • Add a Security Definition using API Key, Basic Auth or OAuth.

API Connect allows you to securely authenticate your Catalogs and APIs by adding a Security and Security Definitions section to your API. One of the options for a Security Definition is to add OAuth Open ID Connect from a 3rd party provider.
