What is API testing?

API’s are now becoming common practice within application development and can contain vulnerabilities similar to web applications, however often without the access of a user interface. These issues can still exist ‘under the bonnet’ and should be treated with the same level of integrity as other aspects of your digital footprint.


Application Programming interfaces are intermediary software’s that allow multiple applications to communicate with each other. Web-based API’s (HTTP/REST) although generally have stronger security, discipline and governance can still be vulnerable to dynamic functions developed in-house.  OmniCyber Security offers one primary API test – White-box, where documentation and sample requests are presented to the tester due to the bespoke manner of each individual engagement.
