When we try to utilize APIs orassess the risk of these APIs, having the open API specification is an essential and requiredbuilding block.In this webinar, we will introduce APIClarity, a new open source tool that will act as a Wiresharkfor APIs and, when installed in a Kubernetes environment, provide: Seamless documentation for all Open API specifications without code instrumentation ormodifying existing workloads Detection of API changes or drifts over time Identification of Zombie (deprecated) and Shadow (undocumented) APIs when given aprovided open API specificationWebinar Agenda and Key Discussion Points:1. Understanding the need for, and benefits of, open API specification reconstruction2. A survey of existing open source solutions for open API specification reconstruction3. An APIClarity demo4. Potential use cases of APIClarity for API security
