API Security Testing During API Design & Development
Because APIs are specified earliest in the SDLC and have a defined OpenAPI contract (via OpenAPI / Swagger) they are ideally suited to a preemptive “shift left” API security testing approach. 42Crunch's API Audit enables the testing of the OpenAPI contract and API Scan enables the testing of the underlying implementation of the API. Both are available in developer IDEs and CI/CD Platforms. Try some of our free API testing tools for developer and security teams.
Free Online Audit of Your OpenAPI Contract
- Check security of your OpenAPI (Swagger) definition file.
- 300+ audit checks.
- Instant report in your browser.
Dynamic Runtime Testing of your APIs
In addition to static testing, 42Crunch also offers dynamic testing of your API using API Scan. We simulate real API traffic with randomly generated requests and parameters to better test the API’s behavior under real-world conditions and its conformance to the already audited OpenAPI contract.

- Dynamic runtime testing that simulates real traffic to your API.
- Tests conformance to the audited OpenAPI Contract.
- The instant report provides automated and guided fixes in-line with code.
Leverage the declarative nature of API specifications for a “shift left” approach and enforce and test API security using a positive security model.
