Under Attack?

TsaroLabs - Security Integrated

Secure Code Review

Take a code-based audit and create the best-in-class security practice

Overview

Construct a secure application instead of fixing the insecure ones

With networks becoming more secure, web application vulnerabilities inevitably attract attackers’ attention. The hackers devise techniques to exploit loopholes in your web apps, resulting in an exceed in attacks on the web application layer. For further risk mitigation, penetration testing must securely and regularly validate applications. Secure Code Review services are one of the most critical activities regarding securing applications.

The same should be performed in a perfect scenario of both – Automatic and Manual reviews, given that some errors identified by automatic review could be falsely positive in manual review.

Let us assume your colleagues sent your code to review in a given scenario. What Vulnerabilities will you look for?

Broken Authentication / Broken Access Control

Database communication security

Data encryption

Data protection

Error handling

File management

Transport Layer Security

Hardcoded credentials

Input validation

Language-specific issues (e.g. type juggling in PHP)

Memory management

Output sanitization

Security through obscurity

It is important to note that in this stage, it is not essential to find every security flaw in an application but to offer developers insights into what classes of vulnerabilities exist.

Our Methodology

At TSARO LABS our secure code review services or methodology adheres to recognized and well-respected industry frameworks, including the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), NIST, etc. This secure code review service combines human effort and technology support, which consists of going through the codebase and locating constructs that lead to vulnerabilities. In addition, we offer security from the start of the development process, rather than brushing it at the end. As a result, it helps you create secure applications that can withstand attacks.

What are the benefits of SCR?

Quick factors that should be considered while creating a scalable access control mechanism in the field of web application

Effort benefit

To fix the vulnerabilities in the earlier stage of the SDLC process is lesser than in the later stage. Once the code is complete without identifying any flaw, finding problems is very tedious and time-consuming after the application is ready to move into production. Also, last-minute fixing may affect the program's full functionality, impacting deadlines set for the product release.

Cost benefit

Cost is directly proportional to the effort required. The development costs with identified vulnerability in the production environment may also involve costs. It's worth it, because the costs associated with an attack can be much steeper.

Compliance

Some compliance, such as PCI, makes it necessary to do a secure code review before launching the product. So an organization following complete SDLC has a better chance of being certified.

Reputation

Secure code review removes most of the security flaws in the earlier phase, making it more secure than just doing black-box assessments. So there is less chance of the product being compromised, hence a lesser event of reputation damage.

Frequently Asked Question

A code review aims to identify security flaws in the application related to its features and design, along with the exact root causes. With the increasing complexity of applications and the advent of new technologies, the traditional way of testing may fail to detect all the security flaws present in the applications. Therefore, one must understand the code of the application, external components, and configurations to have a better chance of finding the flaws. Furthermore, such a deep dive into the application code also helps determine exact mitigation techniques that can be used to avert security flaws.
