1. Securing AI APIs with Okta CORS Policies


    To secure your AI APIs with Okta CORS policies, you'll need to define Trusted Origins within your Okta organization. CORS, or Cross-Origin Resource Sharing, is a security feature that allows you to specify which domains are permitted to make requests to your API. By leveraging Okta's Trusted Origins, you can manage CORS policies to ensure that only certain web domains have the right to access your AI APIs.

    In Pulumi, you can use the okta package which contains resources for managing Okta configurations. Specifically, the okta.trustedorigin.Origin resource can be used to create and manage Trusted Origins for CORS.

    Here's a program in Python that demonstrates how you would create a Trusted Origin for your AI API using Pulumi:

    import pulumi import pulumi_okta as okta # This example assumes that you have already set up Okta authentication for Pulumi # and have the necessary permissions to create resources within your Okta organization. # Create a new trusted origin for CORS policy within your Okta organization ai_api_trusted_origin = okta.TrustedoriginOrigin("aiApiTrustedOrigin", name="my-ai-api-origin", # A human-readable name for the trusted origin. origin="https://ai.example.com", # Specify the origin URL of your AI API. scopes=[{"type": "CORS"}], # The type of trusted origin. In this case, it's for CORS. ) # Export the ID of the trusted origin, which may be useful for future operations pulumi.export("trusted_origin_id", ai_api_trusted_origin.id)

    This program creates a Trusted Origin in Okta for the domain https://ai.example.com. The scopes property indicates that this origin is allowed for CORS—which means that any browser-based application from this origin can interact with your Okta-protected APIs without being blocked by the browser's same-origin policy.

    By using the Okta provider in Pulumi, you're able to codify your security policies as part of your infrastructure as code, leading to more reliable and reproducible setups. Remember that any changes applied to your infrastructure through Pulumi will result in modifications to your live Okta environment, so it's always a good idea to review Pulumi's preview before applying changes.

    If you need to manage more advanced configurations like Access Policies or Authorization Servers in Okta, Pulumi also provides resources for those so that you can fully manage your Okta environment's security posture in a programmatic way. For complex scenarios, consider chaining resources and using the Pulumi apply method to transform and combine outputs as necessary.
