Securing REST APIs with Connect PHP

Accepted answer
edited Oct 26, 2017 4:50AM in Integrations and APIs 1 comment


Hello dears,

We are currently creating REST APIs  with the Connect PHP model. We rely on these heavily to read/create objects and query important information.

However, since these pages are published, anyone with the url is able to access the information they return.

My question is: is there a way to secure these pages? Is there a best practices document/thread/guideline recommended by Oracle when it comes to securing custom REST APIs?

Currently the security method we are adopting is posting username/password credentials from a back-end server to our API page and performing a validation check before querying the info.

Howdy, Stranger!
