Athena API Keys: Security

Last updated

API keys provide secured access to the Athena Content Hub API. You should treat all API keys like you would treat a password or any other credentials. Keep it secret! Keep it safe!

  • Don't store API keys in shared or public code bases (including Git/GitLab).
  • Deactivate unneeded API keys to prevent unauthorized access.
  • If you suspect an API key has been compromised, generate a new one (and be sure to update it in any connected apps).
  • Regenerate API keys at least once a year along with database credentials.

If you suspect data has been compromised, follow your organization's information security policies accordingly.
