The aim of this video is to present how passwords should be stored within a web application.
Although the importance of the passwords,…many people still have one password…for every account which they use online.…It does not matter if that is an e-mail address,…Facebook account, or even a password…for their internet banking.…People tend to think that by entering text into a masked box…that remains hidden from everyone,…but that is not true.…In work environments, co-workers tend to use…the same credentials and passwords…
Regardless of platform, you will need to build APIs to serve data between different client applications and endpoints. Good APIs are a necessity for web and mobile projects, especially with the modern, mobile-first approach to development. This course delivers the fundamental knowledge required to enable highly connected interactions between applications via RESTful web APIs. Follow along with Gergo Bogdan and learn how to build up and structure an effective web API that can be used by any client application accessing it over HTTP, using Flask, the Python microframework.
Find out how to implement CRUD operations using SQLAlchemy and MySQL as the data store. Get an understanding of how REST works relative to APIs, and learn how to test APIs written in Python with the support of Flask. Explore token-based authentication and find out how to store passwords securely in your database. Along the way, Gergo introduces best practices and design guidelines when building large applications.
