As APIs continue to increase across industries, so too do the threats to their security. The OWASP API Top 10 list is an essential resource for businesses looking to secure their application programming interfaces.
OWASP is best known for releasing the top 10 security risks and vulnerability lists for web apps, mobile apps, APIs, and so on, which are revised every four years to reflect the latest threats and risks affecting organizations globally.
The OWASP API Top 10 2019 edition provided a comprehensive overview of the top threats facing APIs at that time, but the threat landscape has evolved rapidly since then. To address these changes and provide new insights and recommendations for API security, the OWASP released the 2023 release candidate for feedback.
