RESTful Web API Patterns and Practices Cookbook

Many organizations today orchestrate and maintain apps that rely on other people's services. Software designers, developers, and architects in those companies often work to coordinate and maintain apps based on existing microservices, including third-party services that run outside their ecosystem. This cookbook provides proven recipes to help you get those many disparate parts to work together in your network. Author Mike Amundsen provides step-by-step solutions for finding, connecting, and maintaining applications designed and built by people outside the organization. Whether you're working on human-centric mobile apps or creating high-powered machine-to-machine solutions, this guide shows you the rules, routines, commands, and protocols--the glue--that integrates individual microservices so they can function together in a safe, scalable, and reliable way. Design and build individual microservices that can successfully interact on the open web Increase interoperability by designing services that share a common understanding Build client applications that can adapt to evolving services without breaking Create resilient and reliable microservices that support peer-to-peer interactions on the web Use web-based service registries to support runtime "find-and-bind" operations that manage external dependencies in real time Implement stable workflows to accomplish complex, multiservice tasks consistently

Pro ASP NET Web API Security

ASP.NET Web API is a key part of ASP.NET MVC 4 and the platform of choice for building RESTful services that can be accessed by a wide range of devices. Everything from JavaScript libraries to RIA plugins, RFID readers to smart phones can consume your services using platform-agnostic HTTP. With such wide accessibility, securing your code effectively needs to be a top priority. You will quickly find that the WCF security protocols you’re familiar with from .NET are less suitable than they once were in this new environment, proving themselves cumbersome and limited in terms of the standards they can work with. Fortunately, ASP.NET Web API provides a simple, robust security solution of its own that fits neatly within the ASP.NET MVC programming model and secures your code without the need for SOAP, meaning that there is no limit to the range of devices that it can work with – if it can understand HTTP, then it can be secured by Web API. These SOAP-less security techniques are the focus of this book. What you’ll learn Identity management and cryptography HTTP basic and digest authentication and Windows authentication HTTP advanced concepts such as web caching, ETag, and CORS Ownership factors of API keys, client X.509 certificates, and SAML tokens Simple Web Token (SWT) and signed and encrypted JSON Web Token (JWT) OAuth 2.0 from the ground up using JWT as the bearer token OAuth 2.0 authorization codes and implicit grants using DotNetOpenAuth Two-factor authentication using Google Authenticator OWASP Top Ten risks for 2013Who this book is for No prior experience of .NET security is needed to read this book. All security related concepts will be introduced from first-principles and developed to the point where you can use them confidently in a professional environment. A good working knowledge of and experience with C# and the .NET framework are the only prerequisites to benefit from this book.
