Going to a vendor's Knowledge Base (KB) is often the first place practitioners go to get the product deployed or troubleshoot issues. Even with advanced search tools, historically, KBs have been challenging to find relevant content quickly, and navigating a KB can be frustrating. At Salt Security, not only do we want to make your job of securing APIs easier, but we also want to make getting the guidance you need easier, friendlier and more efficient.

Could you imagine our interstate highway system without roadway bridges? I don’t think anyone would argue that bridges are not an essential part of an effective ground transportation network. So it doesn’t surprise me that when I ask people what makes a highway bridge “good,” I get quick responses with pretty consistent answers: guardrails, proper lighting, clear signage, smooth driving surface, lane markings, load capacity, structural integrity, and so on.

Is Salt Security a fortune teller? We’re not sure if we’d go as far as to say that, but we certainly have had our fair share of precognitive moments. In today’s virtual age where everyone is utilizing and relying on digital landscapes, people’s data is constantly being put online. As technology advances and more people go online, bad actors and cyber threats use vulnerabilities in Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to get access to sensitive data.

OAuth (Open Authorization) is one of the fastest adopted technologies in the AppSec domain. From its first introduction in 2006, as an attempt to introduce a standard authorization protocol, it has become one of the most popular protocols for both user authorization and authentication, and it’s being used by almost every major web service and website today. One of the reasons for its huge popularity is its ease of implementation.

This short video explains how Salt Labs researchers identified several critical security flaws on the popular site - Grammarly. The flaws were found in the site's authentication functionality and could have allowed a malicious attacker to take over user accounts, access profile information, and take actions on behalf of the user. All issues were reported to Grammarly and have been resolved with no evidence of these flaws being actively exploited in the wild. In the research, they also found similar vulnerabilities in Vidio.com and Bukalapak.com.
