Application Security Testing

Security testing is a procedure intended to reveal the flaws in the security mechanisms of an information system due to which data remains secure and highly protected. However, security testing has some logical limitations as well. Thus, passing security testing is not an indication that the system does not contain any flaws or that the system satisfies the security requirements adequately.

Typical security requirements include:

  • Confidentiality.
  • Authentication.
  • Integrity.
  • Availability.
  • Authorization.
  • Non-repudiation.

Application security testing techniques search thoroughly for vulnerabilities or security holes in applications. Hence, security testing is implemented throughout the software development life cycle so that the weaknesses may be detected in a timely and thorough manner.

Insync solution is a leading provider of IT outsourcing, custom programming, offshore software design and development and software testing services. We are focused on high-quality custom design and testing with the most cost-efficient and timely delivery to our clients. Application security testing is itself a vast procedure to be carried out by an individual alone. Thus, we group together some of our employees to work in this field.

Just like many other organizations, we use vulnerability scanners or web application scanners as our starting penetration testing tool. Given below are the two basic types of automated tools associated with application vulnerability detection that are used by different organizations:

  • Black box testing tools, which are also referred to as penetration testing tools.
  • White box testing tools, which are also referred to as static code analysis tools.

Application security testing is not a process that can be accomplished in a single go. It goes through many different processes that are enlisted below:

  • Discovery: In this stage, the systems within the scope and the services in use are identified.
  • Vulnerability Scan: Following the first stage, it looks for the security issues that are known by using the two primary automated tools to match the conditions with known vulnerabilities. Without any manual verification, the reported risk level is set automatically by the tool.
  • Vulnerability Assessment: It uses discovery and vulnerability scanning to identify security vulnerabilities.
  • Security Assessment: Following the third step, it adds up the manual verification to confirm exposure without including the exploitation of vulnerabilities.
  • Penetration Test: It simulates an attack by a malicious party.
  • Security Audit: It is driven by an audit function to look at a particular compliance issue.
  • Security Review: It verifies the industry standards or the internal security standards applied to system products.
