After IBM’s acquisition of StrongLoop, we have integrated
the latest product offering from IBM called API Connect. IBM API Connect is
a complete solution that addresses all aspects of the API lifecycle, for both
on-premises and cloud environments. It offers comprehensive capabilities to
create, run, manage, secure and monetize APIs and microservices. Delivering an
unparalleled, integrated user experience, it enables rapid deployment and
simplified administration of APIs.
apiconnect-microgateway is the enforcement secure component of API
Connect. It is fundamentally a proxy, securing and forwarding requests to
backend APIs. API Connect Micro Gateway was created using StrongLoop technology
and a series of middleware components. The package is customized to work with
the API Connect infrastructure that automatically communicates with the micro
gateway to dynamically load APIs, Products, and Plans so that APIs are secured
and processed in a seamless fashion.

The StrongLoop API Gateway,
strong-gateway, enables you to externalize,
secure, and manage APIs. The API gateway is an intermediary between API consumers (clients) and API servers.
The StrongLoop API Gateway's features include:
- HTTPS: Ensure all communication is done securely via HTTPS.
- OAuth 2.0 authentication and authorization: Authenticate client applications and authorize them to access protected endpoints with approval from resource owners.
- Rate limiting: control how many requests can be made within a given time period for identified api consumers.
- Reverse proxy: forward the requests to the server that hosts the api endpoint
