Kong is a scalable, modular and fault-tolerant API layer (aka API gateway or API middleware) that runs in front of any RESTful API. It is built on top of reliable technologies like NGINX which provides developers an easy-to-use RESTful API to operate and configure the system. It is mainly used to act as a gateway for HTTP requests providing logging, authentication, and rate-limiting to websites and mobile or IoT (Internet of Things) applications.
