APIDays Finland was a great event in June 2019 hosted by the APIOps Community and APIDays Global.

Key risks APIs have are deceptive transactions, leaks of personally identifiable information and denial of service attacks, pointed out security consultant and CEO of HackrFi Lea Viljanen. She introduced Bug Bounty program, where an organization pays security researchers if they report security vulnerabilities in a responsible manner, and shared its peculiarities and benefits.

Sam Bellen, Developer Evangelist at Auth0 talked on his session about How Web Tokens Work and Can be Used to Secure Your Single Page Apps. But what are the web tokens? Web token is a unique identifier representing something. There can be different kinds of tokens, for example, access, ID or refresh tokens. He also introduces JSON tokens in more detail.
