Directory Sharing in a Web-Based RDP Client Using the File System Access API

Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a protocol developed by Microsoft which at its core is designed to give users a graphical interface to a remote Windows computer over a network connection. The remote Windows machine runs an RDP server, while the local computer accessing it runs an RDP client. Windows comes bundled with Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection to easily access Windows hosts over RDP.

APIs: Risks and security solutions

APIs have become a vital part of doing business. Organizations increasingly rely on the use of APIs for day-to-day workflows, particularly as cloud applications become something of a mainstay. A recent report found that the average number of APIs per company increased by 221% in 2021. Not only are APIs impossible to ignore, but the need to invest in API security cannot be overlooked. The trend in usage is closely followed by opportunists seeking ways to exploit vulnerabilities for their gain.

Best practices for API gateway security

APIs are a critical component of today’s development landscape because of their importance in microservices. Since modern software is often composed of various microservices, certain functionalities may be beyond the scope of an individual API. With an API gateway, we can aggregate those services to behave as if they were a single API, and return complex responses from disparate microservices through a single call to an API gateway.

Why API Security Matters in 2022

APIs are the hottest attack vector in modern software. In this blog, we’ll look at how APIs add risk and best practices for securing them. For anyone who doesn’t know, API stands for Application Programming Interface. APIs provide a way for software programs to communicate with the external world. And securing these interfaces is a growing problem. Historically, security teams have focused on securing the platform (networks and infrastructure) on which applications run.

Building a secure API with gRPC

A Google remote procedure call (gRPC) is Google’s open source version of the remote procedure call (RPC) framework. It’s a communication protocol leveraging HTTP/2 and protocol buffer (protobuf) technologies. gRPC enables a remote client or server to communicate with another server by simply calling the receiving server’s function as if it were local. This makes communicating and transferring large data sets between client and server much easier in distributed systems.

API authentication and authorization best practices

Learn about API authentication and authorization best practices to ensure your APIs are secure. While we often use the terms interchangeably, authorization and authentication are two separate functions. Authentication is the process of verifying who a user is, and authorization is the process of verifying what they have access to.

Rubrik and GraphQL - Episode 4 - Powershell

Powershell is by far the most widely utilized SDK that Rubrik provides. While an SDK is currently under development to cover off everything Rubrik Security Cloud and GraphQL, this episode will show you how to make raw GraphQL API calls into the Rubrik platform using the infamous scripting tool. You will see how to form various queries and mutations within Powershell, and how to parse the returned responses - performing real-world automation scenarios with Powershell and Rubrik.
