What is a Secure Code Review?

A code review validates the security standards of your web application source code and identifies the underlying security vulnerabilities which may have been ignored in the development phase and ultimately exposing your application weak points. This exposed application will prone to cyber-attacks. A secure code review is a remedial method that involves a series of manual and automated screening of your web application’s source code to find out the security vulnerabilities that may prevail.


Why do You Need to Perform a Secure Code Review?

In recent times, web applications are very critical for all organizations. Web applications store, manage and broadcast confidential data in an organization. The data accessed using web applications hold a greater value and thereby, become a major target for cybercriminals.

Performing a secure code review is important to make sure your web applications are not prone to cyber-attacks. Organizations must act proactively to secure their web applications, in order to maintain their reputation and trust with their users, customers, and partners.

Therefore, web applications must be assessed at regular intervals. Web applications are often attacked using the following methods. They are;

SQL Injection

This method is imposed by hackers when a user inputs data into a web application in the form of a command or a query. Hacker’s malicious payload makes the web application to execute commands that are not intended and lead to unauthorized data access.

Broken Authentication & Access Control

Broken access control can lead to privilege escalation. Due to this, hackers gain access to information that contains administration rights and can access user accounts, view, and modify the sensitive data of their choice.

Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)

This method grants access to a hacker to execute scripts in the user’s browser and leading to session hijacking, website redirection to a malicious page. This occurs when a web application receives user input without proper validation of a web page.

Data Leakage

Web applications and APIs often do not protect confidential information such as credit card numbers, patient information, or social security numbers of the users. Data leakage in any organization leads to online theft, identity theft, and more.

Key Benefits of Secure Code Review

  • Detailed report on your organization’ web application security containing the security flaws, vulnerable points with the appropriate remediation steps.
  • Assessment of source codes prior to deployment to protect your organization’s reputation from a breach or any cyber incident.
  • Advanced protection of your business’ data, IT assets and business intelligence.
  • Product source code review to assure quality as a part of due diligence process during acquisitions and partnership.
  • Provides assurance on secure defensive development process.
  • Assurance to a secure Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

Secure Code Review  

An application that is vulnerable makes itself prone to a cyber-criminal. This increases the probability of using the application in an attack.

Secure Code Review focuses on the following below:

Authentication & Authorization

Logging & Session Management

Data Validation

Error Handling
