To connect devices with each other and the Internet, developers rely on
application programming interfaces (APIs) that specify the intended behavior of
the device without revealing how it works. Connected devices are now

describe the basics of API security, and give an example of his recent run-in
with a weakly secured API (that made headlines)!
