Introduction to Application Security

by | Aug 12, 2015 | Webinars

Application security testing involves taking measures throughout the software development life-cycle (SDLC) to prevent weaknesses in code that could be exploited by an attacker. This webinar offers an introduction to a variety of application security testing techniques including:

  • Manual Testing – Analyzing the code line by line.
  • Static Application Security Testing (SAST), known as white box testing, which analyzes the application source, byte or binary code for weaknesses during the programming or testing phases of the software lifecycle.
  • Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), known as black box testing or application penetration testing, which analyzes applications for weaknesses while the code is running.
  • The webinar also distinguishes between quality and security testing, and describes how the two complement each other.
