Source Code Review & Audit

Source code auditing is a powerful tool for uncovering defects, security flaws, and vulnerabilities in source code that would otherwise go undetected by traditional penetration testing methods like black box testing and grey box testing. These previously unknown flaws have the potential to jeopardise the application's security.
Static Application Security Testing, sometimes known as "white box testing," has been around for more than a decade. It allows engineers to find security flaws in application source code before the product development life cycle begins.
Due to the continual threat of malicious assaults, source code analysis is a major issue for businesses. It is critical to analyse both internally generated and third-party software before purchasing it, so that businesses may identify and address vulnerabilities before deploying the applications.
To find the security flaw in the source code, DigiAlert uses a mix of thorough market research and preset security rules. Anti-patterns, logic mistakes, memory leaks, workflow problems, and other typical programming problems can all be identified using the specified principles.
In addition, DigiAlert employs SAST automated techniques to scan application code for defects that result in security vulnerabilities while the code is static/non-running. This comprehensive and successful technique to Source Code Analysis aids developers in resolving issues early in the SDLC.

What is our methodology?

Source code analysis uncovers hidden vulnerabilities, design faults, and evaluates the implementation of essential security safeguards. Many times, software and applications contain faults and vulnerabilities, exposing the product to potential attacks from attackers looking to exploit these defects. As a result, attackers may gain access to sensitive data (data leakage) and assets.

Why does your business needs source code review?

Source Code Review (SCR) is a methodical and secure analysis of an application's or software's source code. It searches for Security Loop Holes, which are bugs that may have been inserted and overlooked during the development of an application or software.
Certain applications and software may contain flaws that allow attackers to extract crucial information, potentially resulting in the loss of intellectual property and secure data. Source code inspection aids in the verification of important security controls. It also scans any programme or software for design flaws and hidden vulnerabilities.
Source code analysis can identify the contaminated variable that reflects the vulnerability while also distinguishing which proclamation on which line of code is defenceless. It reflects the spread from the underlying driver to the end product along these lines. This provides application developers with a comprehensive overview of each example of vulnerability, allowing them to grasp the gist of the problem quickly.

What are the advantages of source code review?

Results in less time

Code analysis makes it simple to find faults and eliminates the requirement to provide test data to the application or software because access to the whole code base is available.

Detailed Examination

Examine the program's complete code layout, including areas not covered by an application security test, such as entry points for various inputs, internal interfaces and integrations, data handling and validation logic, and the use of external APIs and frameworks.

Overcome Testing Barriers

Code analysis makes it simple to find faults and eliminates the requirement to provide test data to the application or software because access to the whole code base is available.

Produce Reports

Produce security code review reports that include an executive summary listing strengths and weaknesses, as well as detailed findings with code-based answers and corrections.

Provide Answers

Secure sensitive data storage and provide specific solutions tailored to your developers' needs, including code-level recommendations that include more thorough tests to discover all instances of common vulnerabilities.

Meet Compliance Requirements

Comply with industry norms and compliance standards, such as the PCI DSS.

How can we help you in overcoming the challenges faced?

Because apps include vulnerabilities, an attacker may be able to exploit some of them to manipulate or access your information resources and abilities.

  • Web applications, in particular, are especially susceptible to these flaws, as they are frequently written and deployed in a hurry, with insufficient time spent on security testing.
  • We have a comprehensive auditing system in place for web application code.
  • Our survey process is specifically tailored to find vulnerabilities that commonly occur in apps.
  • To conduct a source code survey, we use a combination of automated and human methods.
