About Source Code Review
Source Code reviews are an effective method for finding bugs that can be difficult or impossible to find during black box or grey box testing. Our expert developers and security architects conduct a fast and effective code review armed with a comprehensive checklist of common implementation and architecture errors. Our expert team is hence able to quickly assess your code and provide you with a report containing all vulnerabilities discovered during the analysis part.
Source code analysis not only identifies which statement on which line of code is vulnerable, but is also able to identify the tainted variable that introduces the vulnerability. In this way it illustrates the propagation from root cause, to end result. This provides application developers with an end to end overview of each instance of vulnerability, allowing them to quickly understand the nature of the problem.
WHAT IS THE METHODOLOGY USED FOR SOURCE CODE REVIEW ?
Here is a brief snapshot of our Code review methodology followed by our consultants:
When the code review is complete, we’ll provide you with a detailed list of design and code level security vulnerabilities as well as remedial steps for improving overall development process.
What are the challenges faced during Source Code Review ?
Since applications contain bugs; there exists a possibility that an attacker might be able to exploit some of them to impact or gain access to your information assets and capabilities. Web applications in particular are more be affected by these vulnerabilities, as they are frequently developed and deployed quickly in production in short durations without sufficient time spent in security testing. We have a rigorous methodology for reviewing web application code. Our review process is specifically tailored to find vulnerabilities that commonly occur in applications. We use a combination of both automated and manual techniques to conduct a source code review. Through the use of tools such as Check`marx and Fortify, we are able to pick up vulnerabilities across large code-bases, and then narrow our focus onto security-specific modules of code (such as those implementing encryption or authorization) and also check for business logic issues.
