In this video, learn how to think about authentication for a REST API, and compare the popular approaches.
- [Instructor] In the previous video,…we looked at some common HTTP Authentication Schemes.…Which scheme makes the most sense for our RESTful API…depends on a few factors.…The primary question you should consider…when deciding on an authentication scheme…for your RESTful API is who or what is the target audience?…And what credentials will they use…to authenticate with your API?…If you're building an API service…that will be used by other developers,…you'll most likely wanna issue API keys for your service.…This also applies if you're building an API…that will primarily be used for machine to machine…or service to service communication.…
For this scenario, you could consider using…basic authentication if you're not…too worried about security.…A more secure choice would be…the OpenID Connect client credentials flow…or the API key in secret are exchanged for a bearer token.…On the other hand, if you're designing an API…that will be consumed by an end user application…like a single page app or a native mobile app,…
