    Application security Testing

    Application security Testing encompasses measures taken throughout the code’s life-cycle to prevent gaps in the security policy of an application or the underlying system(vulnerabilities) through flaws in the design, development, upgrade, or maintenance of the application.
    Threats, attacks, vulnerabilities, and countermeasures:

    According to the patterns & practices Improving Web Application Security book, the following terms are relevant to application security:

    Asset. A resource of value such as the data in a database or on the file system, or a system resource.
    Threat. Anything that can exploit a vulnerability and obtain, damage, or destroy an asset.
    Vulnerability. A weakness or gap in security program that can be exploited by threats to gain unauthorized access to an asset.
    Attack . An action taken to harm an asset.
    Countermeasure. A safeguard that addresses a threat and mitigates risk.

    Web application security testing is always among the most importance for Businesses and firms today as all Web applications are in primary radar of attackers.The reasons are :

    Always presented to the Internet and simple to test by outside attackers utilizing unreservedly accessible devices that search for basic vulnerabilities such as SQL Injection.

    Less demanding to assault than customary targets, for example, the network and host operating system layers which have been solidified after some time.

    Driven by short improvement cycles that expansion the likelihood of design and coding errors — in light of the fact that security is regularly disregarded when the key goal is quick time-to-advertise.

    Assembled from hybrid code acquired from a blend of in-house advancement, outsourced code, outsider libraries and open source — without visibility into which segments contain basic vulnerabilities.

    Application security testing is the technology which is useful as a source code analysis tool. This method analyzes the source code for security vulnerabilities prior to the launch of an application and it is useful to enhance the code.

    Application security testing (AST) is the process of making applications more resistant to security threats, by identifying security weaknesses and vulnerabilities in source code. AST started as a manual process. ... Most organizations use a combination of several application security tools.

    Application security testing is essential for securing of both your applications and your agency. Malicious users trying to breach your security protections are more likely to target your web apps. Web applications are the perfect target for hackers searching for access to valuable back-end data since they are open to customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Although there are many application security testing solutions available, the majority of them demand a substantial capital investment.
