API Security Test With POSTMAN

Attributing to the wide usage of API, it became an easy vector for hackers. The vulnerabilities of API can lead to security failure, data breach, unauthenticated access, and so on. API abuses have become the most common type of web application attack. Securing them holds paramount importance for the smooth running of a secure digital business. The first step to achieving that is an API security assessment. As we all know, POSTMAN is an API development environment. With POSTMAN you can design, mock, debug, test, document, monitor and publish APIs all at the same time. Postman is very convenient when it comes to executing APIs. Many would be familiar with POSTMAN testing essentials, but in recent times POSTMAN along with Pynt opened up doors for Security Test for APIs. Pynt helps us to run the Security test on existing Postman Collections. Pynt is an API security solution that generates automated security tests based on your existing functional test collection. Simply input your functional test collection name into the Pynt collection and run the API security test collection in your workspace.
