Now that your APIs are developed, it’s time to talk about how to secure them. This course covers API security using the Apigee API platform. We’ll learn about how to properly secure your APIs by covering topics such as the types of OAuth, TLS, and SAML to name a few. We’ll apply these concepts with hands on labs to implement proper authentication and validation in your APIs.
By taking this course, you’ll come to have a high level understanding of API security and why it’s important. All supplemental materials will be provided to you for offline review / reference. Since this is the final course in the Specialization, you’ll come out of this course with a fully working and secure API to be used as reference for all your future builds!
Note: Before starting this course, please ensure that you have completed the “API Design and Fundamentals of Google Cloud’s Apigee API Platform” and “API Development on Google Cloud’s Apigee API Platform” courses.
