Security vulnerability checks are important in the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) because they help to identify and mitigate security vulnerabilities before they are exploited by attackers. Security vulnerabilities can exist in any software, regardless of size or complexity, and they can have a significant impact on businesses and individuals.
Secure SDLC integrates SAST, DAST, and SCA into the SDLC, providing comprehensive security coverage for your software.
SAST (Static Application Security Testing) analyzes source code for potential security vulnerabilities.
DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing) tests running applications for security vulnerabilities.
SCA (Software Composition Analysis) identifies and analyzes open source and third-party components in your software to identify security vulnerabilities.
IaC scans (Infrastructure as Code scans) analyze infrastructure as code templates for potential security vulnerabilities.
Begin with a compelling introduction that highlights the importance of security in today’s digital landscape. Discuss the rising threats and vulnerabilities that make Secure SDLC a critical aspect of software development
5. Secure Coding Practices:
Highlight the importance of secure coding guidelines, including input validation, error handling, and the prevention of common vulnerabilities like SQL injection and cross-site scripting.
