The first type of authentication is accepting proof of identity given by a credible person who has first-hand evidence that the identity is genuine.

The second type of authentication is comparing the attributes of the object itself to what is known about objects of that origin.

The third type of authentication relies on documentation or other external affirmations.

Diminish The Complexities With Advanced Authentication API Integration

The ways in which someone may be authenticated fall into three categories, based on what is known as the factors of authentication: something the user knows, something the user has, and something the user is.

Frequently Asked Question

Authentication is stating that you are who you are and Authorization is asking if you have access to a certain resource. When working with REST APIs you must remember to consider security from the start. RESTful API often uses GET (read), POST (create), PUT (replace/update) and DELETE (to delete a record).
Involves checking resources that the user is authorized to access or modify via defined roles or claims. For example, the authenticated user is authorized for reading access to a database but not allowed to modify it. The same can be applied to your API.
To protect the keys, use a proxy. Make a server-side component that holds the keys and access the backend, and your HTML page (or app, or Java, or whatever client application) will access it. And you cannot really know if the client connecting is your client.
  • Type 1 – Something You Know – includes passwords, PINs, combinations, code words, or secret handshakes. Anything that you can remember and then type, say, do, perform, or otherwise recall when needed falls into this category.
  • Type 2 – Something You Have – includes all items that are physical objects, such as keys, smartphones, smart cards, USB drives, and token devices. (A token device produces a time-based PIN or can compute a response from a challenge number issued by the server.).
  • Type 3 – Something You Are – includes any part of the human body that can be offered for verification, such as fingerprints, palm scanning, facial recognition, retina scans, iris scans, and voice verification.
