Code Review is probably the single-most effective technique for identifying security flaws.

“Code review is probably the single-most effective technique for identifying security flaws. When used together with automated tools and manual penetration testing, code review can significantly increase the cost effectiveness of an application security verification effort.”

– Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)

During an application life cycle, many tests are conducted before the deployment of a system. Tests such as System Integration Testing (SIT) and User Acceptance Testing (UAT) are performed which focused on ensuring the correct implementation of an application’s functionalities with respect to user’s requirements. Depending on the organization’s policy, Application Vulnerability Assessment may also be conducted to identify security issues with the Application before production roll-out. However, such tests rely on the front-end interface of the application and do not offer a real insight of the application’s behavior.

Source code review, coupled with Application Security Review, allows an organization to audit their application source code to verify that proper security controls are in place and, the codes work as intended and expected.
