Hey there 👋 We've got some exciting news to share with you today!
We're thrilled to introduce you to our brand-new API security testing assistant: the GPT Bot "API Guardian".
Are you tired of spending endless hours proactively looking for the best practices to test and secure APIs? Well, your search is over! Our GPT Bot is here to simplify and streamline the entire process for you.
What is the GPT Bot, and how can it help you?
Since last week, OpenAI has been letting anyone create their own version of ChatGPT.
We've jumped on the hype train and decided to combine our API security expertise with ChatGPT's artificial intelligence.
Our GPT Bot's sole mission is to assist security engineers like you learn more about testing and securing APIs. It's your friendly, 24/7 little helper that can provide guidance, answer questions, and suggest best practices.
Here's how it can make your life easier:
1. Instant expert guidance
Need quick advice on how to perform a security assessment for your API? The API Guardian GPT Bot has got you covered! It can provide instant guidance on various security testing methodologies, including OWASP's API Security Top 10, and help you understand the ins and outs of API security.
Here is an illustrative example of the advice provided on securing Apollo GraphQL:
It doesn't only provide you with a detailed reply but also recommends relevant links to the most useful Github repos.
Here is the difference between GraphQL Wordlist recommendation with API Guardian and a basic ChatGPT model:
A basic GPT model will not provide any external links and will advise you to construct your list yourself. In contrast, the API Guardian model will provide you with the up-to-date link found across our knowledge base.
Other potential prompts you can use:
- I'm working on securing APIs for a healthcare application. What are the industry-specific best practices and compliance considerations I should keep in mind?
- Hello API Guardian, we're using Node.js for our APIs. Can you provide insights and recommendations specifically tailored to securing Node.js APIs, including authentication and encryption practices?
- Recommend me a GraphQL wordlist for pentesting
- How to automate and secure deployment within GitLab CI with Syft and Grype?
2. Personalized recommendations
No two APIs are the same, and our GPT Bot understands that. It can analyze your specific use case and provide tailored recommendations for securing your API. Whether you're dealing with authentication, authorization, encryption, or any other aspect of API security, the GPT Bot can provide guidance tailored to your needs.
3. Stay up-to-date
API security is an ever-evolving field, and it can be challenging to keep up with the latest threats and best practices. The GPT Bot constantly updates its knowledge base to ensure that you're always armed with the most current information and strategies to protect your APIs.
4.Don't miss AI-generated API security jokes
We've decided to make our GPT Bot not only helpful but also funny (as far as you can go with AI-generated jokes, though). As a result, after each response, we hope to bring a smile to your face.
