Flask Code Samples: API Security in Action

What is Flask?

Flask is a lightweight, unopinionated web application framework for Python. Flask can accelerate the process of building web APIs thanks to its simplicity and flexibility. However, any application that lives on the web is subject to security risks and vulnerabilities. Flask tries to mitigate a few of these security challenges for you. But, you need to address some risks on your own, such as setting up HTTP security headers and configuring your application correctly to mitigate Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF). However, when it comes to API authorization, you can integrate the Auth0 by Okta Identity Platform with Flask to deliver a balance between security, privacy, and convenience to your users.

Auth0 handles billions of login transactions each month. That's only possible because Auth0 is committed to solving complex identity problems by empowering developers with tools that meet their unique security needs and requirements. Please let us show you how Auth0 makes identity and security work for you by exploring the Django code samples below.
