What is a Security Code Review?

Source Code review discovers hidden vulnerabilities, design flaws, and verifies if key security controls are implemented. Paladion uses a combination of scanning tools and manual review to detect insecure coding practices, backdoors, injection flaws, cross site scripting flaws, insecure handling of external resources, weak cryptography, etc.

The Security Code Review Process

Preparation

The first step of a security code review is to conduct a through study of the application followed by the creation of a comprehensive threat profile.

Analysis

Our experts study the code layout to develop a specific code reviewer plan, and uses a hybrid approach where automated scans are verified and a custom manual review is performed.

Solutions

Once the code is analyzed, the next step in the security code review process is to verify existing flaws and generate reports that provide solutions.

What is a Security Code Review?

The objective of performing a security code review is to create a security assessment driven by expert analysis to
identify the root causes of an application’s vulnerabilities by analyzing and understanding its code.

The Security
Code Advantage

p2

Faster Results

Easily detect flaws through code analysis and avoid the need to send test data to the application or software
since access to the entire code base of the application is available.

p31-90x90

Thorough Analysis

Evaluate the entire code layout of the application including areas that wouldn’t be analyzed in an application
security test such as entry points for different inputs, internal interfaces and integrations, data handling and
validation logic, and the use of external API’s and frameworks.

p4

Overcome Testing Limitations

Uncover vulnerabilities and detect attack surfaces that automated code scans miss using security code
reviews to detect weak algorithms, identify design flaws, find insecure configurations and spot insecure
coding practices.

p5-90x90

Create Reports

Produce security code review reports that include an executive summary that lists strengths and
weaknesses and provides detailed findings that include precise code based solutions and fixes.

p6-90x90

Provide Solutions

Secure sensitive data storage and suggest precise solutions customized for your developers with code
level suggestions that include more exhaustive checks to find all instances of common vulnerabilities.

p7-90x90

Meet Compliance Standards

Satisfy industry regulations and compliance standards including PCI DSS standards.
