Authentication

The Fido API uses API keys to authenticate requests. You can view and manage your API keys in the Fido Dashboard.

Your API keys carry many privileges, so be sure to keep them secure! Do not share your secret API keys in publicly accessible areas such as GitHub, client-side code, and so forth.

Authentication to the API is performed via HTTP Header. Provide your API key as x-api-key in all requests.

curl --request POST \
  --url https://ingestion.fido.id/1.0/ping/
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -H 'x-api-key: FIDO-d048-85b1-40b2-a48e' \
  -d @- <<'EOF'
  {}
EOF

All API requests must be made over HTTPS. Calls made over plain HTTP will fail. API requests without authentication will also fail.
