There are on web some samples of the API Key. I've seen some companies using it to "protect" the REST services.

Are there plans to put this feature native on the WCF Web Api?

We provide support out of the box for doing api keys through our message handlers. Pablo Cibraro has a nice post on this here. At this point we have no solid plans to put an api key handler though we will ship samples that show how you can do it.
