GraphQL poses unique challenges when it comes to security due to the nature of its powerful query language. In this talk we'll explore different types of GraphQL APIs and their varying and common security needs. We'll then look at the techniques that can be used to protect these APIs and which techniques pair well with each API type. These techniques are not specific to any one vendor or programming language but general best practices that help protect your servers from threats both known and unknown. Attendees will come away with an understanding of common threats GraphQL APIs face, and suitable techniques to address them.
