Representational state transfer (REST) is a software architectural style that defines a set of constraints to be used for creating Web services. Web services that conform to the REST architectural style, called RESTful Web services, provide interoperability between computer systems on the internet. RESTful Web services allow the requesting systems to access and manipulate textual representations of Web resources by using a uniform and predefined set of stateless operations. Other kinds of Web services, such as SOAP Web services, expose their own arbitrary sets of operations.


This integration with RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle, allows organisations to automatically collect access control list (ACL) data (who has access to what), identity data and also directly provision/de-provision access too. 


The guides include examples for applications and provide you with a full framework for any applicaiton that supports REST APIs
