Transcript of API Economy Update

Identity and
the API Economy Baking your core competency
into an open API is a
economic imperative. The Open API Economy If you are not engaged in generating or enabling open API’s for your business—
you are not in the game. And one more thing... Projected Growth API Economy
Imperatives API Growth Over Time Business API Classes The API is the product The API projects the product The API promotes the product The API powers and feeds
the product
RESTful--URI-based interface
JSON/JSON Path--data-oriented encoding and query
Webhooks--URI-based callbacks
Loosely Coupled--discrete components
Late Binding--context
Event Driven(Evented API)--proactive interaction
OAuth--tokenized authentication
OPEN ID Connect--RESTful API for SAML API Technologies Baking your core competency into an open API is a economic imperative. If you are not engaged in generating or enabling open API’s for your business—you are not in the game. Craig Burton

KuppingerCole source: 3Scale source: 3Scale *source: 3Scale Everyone and everything will be API-enabled. Soap vs REST JSON vs. XML OAuth vs. Password My Projections Everyone and everything is API-enabled
3X Devices per person--21 billion by 2016
21b + 7b=28 billion APIs
This does not count any other entities (organizations, govs, etc.)
1.5m new IDs per day
1,065.45 new Id per second Why 28 Billion APIs Changes Everything About Identity The majority of APIs need to be Trusted.
Identity is the new Perimeter. Current trust models for authentication do not scale.
SAML is a one-to-one relationship protocol
There aren't enough living Admins to keep up with a fraction of demand.
639,270 Admins 12 hours a day 5 years
Requires automation. Automation requires APIs. The SAML Model 1:1 Does not Scale Hybrid Model
Identity Management as a Service The Future of Authentication Federation uses broken non-distributed centralized trust model. (Single IdP at one location)
Hybrid uses distributed multi-centered trust model (Trust Frameworks.) What does it Mean? SAML is dead.
SAMLaaS is a short term fix.
Hybrid and trust frameworks are the new Identity solutions.
IdMaaS is a Cloud-based hybrid that uses trust frameworks (and more) http://bit.ly/OgNDX7 Open API Growth Rate This Prezi Source: KuppingerCole Dark APIs are 5X
Growth Rate of Open APIs 30K Open APIs by 2016
