API Keys


Enterstarts Security System V10 support the usage of API Keys for programatic access to the platform objects, storage, services and api's.

API Keys are like authentication token in the sense that they give you access to the platform, but unlike authentication tokens they have no expiration time.

Is good practice to rotate your api-key secret or even delete old and create new ones. This makes your services more safe, and if you use the package system, you wont even need to update more than 1 location to reflect the new API Key changes.


Avoid exposing your api keys or secret to the public, if you must do it, then just use a public facing api-gateway which use them internally, this way you avoid security pitfals and adhere to best practices.
