Get your code analyzed to verify the presence of proper security controls.
A secure code review is the process of identifying and patching coding errors in the development phase
before they turn into a high-level security risk. The review helps in identifying hidden vulnerabilities,
design flaws, detect insecure coding practices, backdoors, injection flaws, cross site scripting bugs, weak
We do an information gathering here. An inspection of the actual running application is quite mandatory to
give the review team an insight about how the application is intended to work. Also, a brief overview of the
structure of codebase and any libraries that are being used can help the review team to get started.
Conducting a threat assessment to better understand the application’s architecture. These threats
will be listed as the vulnerabilities that we will prioritise during the code review. The critical
applications for the organization shall be identified and threat assessment will be conducted for set
During automation the code review is done with the help of different commercial/open source tools.
Automated tools are widely used in analysing large codebase having millions of codes line enhancing the
throughput of the code review process. They are capable of identifying all the insecure packets of code
in the database which can further be evaluated by the developer or any security analyst.
Manual Code Review
Manual code review is the only way that several key security controls can be verified including access control,
encryption, data protection, logging, and back-end system communications and usage. Also, a manual review is important in
tracing the attack surface of an application and identifying how the data flows through an application from its sources to
its sinks. Going through the code line by line is expensive but it gives better clarity of the code and also helps in removing
the false positives.
Confirmation & POC
After the automated and manual review is done, we create a thorough confirmation on the possible risks that were
discovered and what are the possible fixes that can be used to patch a particular vulnerability existing in the codebase
When all the above steps are completed, we put every finding in a report in an understandable format. We
put every issue in the code and the patching solution against it. The issues and recommendations are discussed
between the client’s development and Kratikal’s security team and accordingly development team fixes it.
