In 2019, I hacked 30 bank mobile apps and APIs in coordination with domestic and international financial services and FinTech companies. In 2020-2021, I hacked 30 mobile health (mHealth) apps and FHIR APIs in coordination with healthcare providers, giving me access to thousands of patient records via their APIs due to broken authentication and authorization vulnerabilities. This year, in coordination with federal and state law enforcement agencies, I was able to take remote control of law enforcement vehicles through the automaker’s APIs.
Bold security threats are giving rise to a new industry of API-specific security capabilities much more powerful than current management tools.
In this article, I dig into the details about Broken Object Level Authorization (BOLA) — the most common and most severe API vulnerability today according to the OWASP API Security Project. Insecure Direct Object Reference (IDOR) and BOLA are the same thing. The name was changed from IDOR to BOLA as part of the project.
The majority of organizations rely heavily on third-party web applications connected through APIs to generate revenue and serve customers. In many cases, these web applications contain security vulnerabilities.
As part of DevSecOps best practices, modern application developers and security teams should borrow techniques from crime scene forensics to investigate and protect against attacks.
Today marks an exciting milestone for us and for the security industry overall. Today, we are announcing the industry’s first free API security solution.
Teams need to address three core elements to develop an effective yet scalable model for API security.
The president of the United States signed an Executive Order on improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity. It covers many things, one of which is zero trust architecture. What does this mean?
Attackers have learned to defeat traditional ‘moat around the castle’ perimeter defenses. Modern application security tools offer the answer: distributed tracing and AI that understands the app they protect.
When a security expert tested several dozen mobile health applications, all had API vulnerabilities that could leak personal information. This should be a warning call.
Everything You Need to Know About Authentication and Authorization in Web APIs – Part 2
Attackers are listening to your API chatter, finding vulnerabilities that reveal valuable (and personal) data. Here’s what developers should consider to protect against excessive data exposure.
Part 1: Technologies used to create web applications have fundamentally changed. Authentication and authorization techniques must change with them.
DAST tools provide pentesters with a hacker’s-eye-view of system vulnerabilities. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this important security tool?
SecOps keeps production environments safe. Now, “shifting left” approaches are needed to secure production applications and APIs.
