APIs have transformed our digital world by connecting data, processes and people. There are thousands of APIs publicly available for creating innovative applications dealing with government/public services, health sciences/medicine, business/accounting, justice/public safety, social media/technology and many others. Unfortunately, there are no publicly available repositories that provide assessments on these APIs from a security and legal risk management perspective. Existing repositories such as API.io, ProgrammableWeb and others are best at providing API endpoints, vendors and other information, which are not sufficient to address the security and legal concerns.

In this workshop, users can learn about the API Discovery platform that offers a unique opportunity to developers and enterprises to reap the benefits of thousands of publicly available APIs in a seamless manner. Users can explore and test publicly available APIs without sacrificing the integrity, security and privacy of their data and software systems. Furthermore, users can upload their personal/enterprise APIs (developed as internal and/or public APIs) through Swagger for automated testing of their APIs (using OWASP and PCI benchmarks) that help in mitigating security and legal risks.
