Secure Code Review is a process that involves manual or automated review of an application’s source code to find out the flaws and vulnerabilities in the code. The review helps the developers with information required to make the application’s source code more sound and secure.

Secure Coding Practices are a set of methods that guard your software against the accidental and non-accidental threats and vulnerabilities.

Here are the most popular Secure Coding Practices being followed these days:

  • Keeping the designs simple
  • Staying away from fraud sources
  • Paying heed to compiler warning
  • Keeping access restricted
  • Reducing the privileges
  • Adding multiple layers of security
  • Ensuring effective quality assurance
  • Clearly stating the security requirements

Code review refers to the process of testing the source code. This process is usually carried out to figure out the flaws and bugs during the early stages of the development of a software. Some of the best tools that are used for code review include:

  • Collaborator
  • Gerrit
  • Codestriker
  • Codebrag
  • Crucible
  • Rhodecode
  • Phabricator
  • Review Assistant
  • Review Board

Source code review techniques fall into three main categories:

  • Pair programming - Involves the kind of code analysis where two programmers work together.
  • Formal code review - Involves a careful and detailed review with multiple participants and phases. One of the formal code reviews is known as Fagan Inspection.
  • Lightweight code review - Requires less effort than Formal Code Review but is considered to be equally effective. Some of the Lightweight code reviews include Over the Shoulder, Email Pass Around, Pair Programming and Tool Assisted Code Review.

  • Enables finding bugs at an early stage, when it is easy to fix them.
  • Cross-checks coding standards applicable across the company.
  • Reviews provide better understanding of the code base and help team members enhance knowledge.
  • Allows to maintain consistency within design.
  • Enables higher software security.
  • Promotes team bonding and coherence.
  • Maintains stakeholders and increases their confidence.
