About this event

Not all applications in the cloud native world have their open API specification available – and

this is especially true for legacy and/or external applications. When we try to utilize APIs or

assess the risk of these APIs, having the open API specification is an essential and required

building block.

In this webinar, we will introduce APIClarity, a new open source tool that will act as a Wireshark

for APIs and, when installed in a Kubernetes environment, provide:

 Seamless documentation for all Open API specifications without code instrumentation or

modifying existing workloads

 Detection of API changes or drifts over time

 Identification of Zombie (deprecated) and Shadow (undocumented) APIs when given a

provided open API specification

Webinar Agenda and Key Discussion Points:

1. Understanding the need for, and benefits of, open API specification reconstruction

2. A survey of existing open source solutions for open API specification reconstruction

3. An APIClarity demo

4. Potential use cases of APIClarity for API security
