Also known as security code review it is the process of strategic auditing of the entire source code of web, mobile and thick-lined applications (An application which runs on a user’s machine) and verifies if and whether proper security controls are present and in turn, work as intended.
When is source code review incorporated?
A source code review for your application is advised to be incorporated into the development life cycle at a very early stage, hence reducing the cost and time it takes developers and security analysts to remediate applications flaws and security bugs.
Types of source code review:
Pac-Sec source review will cover 100% of the source code of the software manually. This method of auditing/reviewing the source code for the application will validate the following effects which will include the security control, the logic of the source code, the functionally of the source code and verify whether it has implemented an effective use of the language used to build the application. And specifically will review the security, language and architecture of the code used.
The Methodology Consist of five phases:
In this phase, Pac-Sec examines and validates the basic structure and solution organizations of the source code.
During this phase, the following will be probed:
In this phase, Pac-Sec will distinguish the number of pages within the application using crawling tools.
The following check will be undertaken:
In this phase, Pac-Sec will review the language and logic to validate if they are written to the highest set standard including reviewing ineffective and insecure code.
In this phase, Pac-Sec will identify and verify the data flows and business logic of the source code of the said application.
In this phase, Pac-Sec will report the documented results and respond to the queries form the client-side.
Complete Source Code Review service deliverables will be a detailed report with sections tailored for different audiences.
