REST API Solutions Guide


The REST API provides a standardized method for Next-Gen firewalls, NAC devices, and third-party systems to interact with ICS/IPS. Representational state transfer (REST) or RESTful Web services are one way of providing interoperability between computer systems on the Internet. REST-compliant Web services allow requesting systems to access and manipulate textual representations of Web resources using a uniform and predefined set of stateless operations. In a RESTful Web service, requests made to a resource's URI will elicit a response that may be in XML, HTML, JSON or some other defined format. ICS/IPS supports JSON format only.
