What is API abuse?

Consequences of API abuse

  • Injection Attacks
  • DDoS Attacks

How to prevent API abuse?

  • Every API call coming from bots should be monitored and managed through and through. As most API abuse happens with the help of bots, API calls made from bots shouldn’t be entertained casually.
  • API authentication and authorization of the highest grade should be implemented.
  • The API login process must have the backing of 2FA and robust encryption.
  • The entire API path should be watched over carefully to spot any vulnerability in the infancy stage.
  • For effective fault tolerance, one must adopt the cluster API implementation process.
