Secure Code Review is a process that identifies the insecure piece of code which may cause a potential vulnerability in a later stage of the development process, ultimately leading to an insecure result. When a vulnerability is detected in earlier stages of DLC, it has less impact than the later stages of DLC when the insecure code moves to the production environment. In the Development Life Cycle process, the secure code review process comes under the Development Phase, which means that when the application is being coded by the developers, they can do a self-code review or a security analyst can perform the code review or both.
Different studies and surveys show that approximately 75% of attacks happen due to an insecure application, which includes insecure code. This way, it becomes a very essential part of DLC which should be performed rigorously. Developers mostly tend to focus on the functionality of the application and ignore the secure coding approach.
