RE­VIEW­ING OF CODE

Distinguished Magazine - - INNOVATION -

Reg­u­lar scan­ning of the codes should be done for se­cu­rity weak­nesses dur­ing the cy­cle of de­vel­op­ment. Firms need to de­velop codes that give im­por­tance to se­cu­rity and still keep it af­ford­able to its users. Ver­a­code’s chief tech­nol­ogy of­fi­cer wrote in SC Mag­a­zine, “It is cheap­est to de­tect and cor­rect as early in the process as prac­ti­cal. A de­sign flaw not de­tected un­til fi­nal test­ing will likely re­quire hun­dreds of other lines of code to be changed and retested, as well. Whereas, if the flaw were de­tected dur­ing a threat-mod­el­ing ex­er­cise be­fore any code is ac­tu­ally writ­ten, one could save both time and money.”
