The Identity and Access Management section covers how to manage your accounts (projects), securely authenticate Twilio REST API requests, and best practices for accessing Twilio.
This section covers the following:
- Basic introduction of how to get started with the Twilio REST API.
- The Account and Project section offers guidance on how to pick the right account architecture.
- API Keys are the best way to authenticate API requests.
- Credentials allow for Public Keys management. Products like Public Key Client Validation and Voice Recordings Encryption rely on those Credentials.
- Public Key Client Validation helps organizations in compliance-heavy industries meet strict security requirements, such as not relying on shared secrets, validating the sender, or verifying message content.
- Single Sign-On mitigates compliance and security risks for organizations by giving businesses control over user authentication and user revocation via corporate mandated tools.
- Twilio Connect allows you to obtain authorization to perform API functions on behalf of another Twilio account holder.
