Crowdsource hackers Hakluke and Farah Hawa have joined forces on this guest blog on how hackers and defenders can (safely) hack APIs to help make the Internet safer.
All this to say – there are APIs everywhere now, so we should know how to hack and secure them. If you’re still reading – your fingers are probably hovering over ctrl+w. Your brain is thinking “this article title promised to teach me to hack, not what a SPA is. I am an intellectual individual and the author’s attempts at humour are futile, life is short and I am wasting my time reading this stupi….” HOLD IT! We’re getting there. I promise. Cool your jets. Goooooosfraba.
Postman is a handy application that makes API security testing a breeze. You can download Postman from its official website. In essence, Postman is just another HTTP client which can be used to easily modify and send requests to APIs.
