Security in eHive is very important for keeping users’ information safe and for keeping unwanted spammers away. As such we enforce some strict security policies for using the API. Anyone using the API must have an active eHive account and must generate a set of API authentication keys. The authentication keys are used each time someone communicates with eHive via the API. If the authentication keys are not valid then no access is granted.

The authentication keys are used as part of a very secure and modern security protocol which adheres to the  OAuth 2.0 specification.
