Smart Scanner API uses the api_key request parameter to authenticate requests. API requests without authentication will fail.

An example of the api_key query parameter usage is shown in the following URL.

Please keep in mind that Smart Scanner API requests must be made over HTTPS. Calls made over plain HTTP will fail.

And more importantly, be sure to keep the API key secure. Your API key carries your privileges. So please do not share your API key in publicly accessible areas such as client-side code, GitHub, and so forth.
