appSQA Source Code Audit, a service offered by
ADDSecure.Net Inc., provides program testing and
code inspection of Internet applications to uncover security and quality assurance flaws. This
original service is being offered worldwide to developers, system integraters and users of mission-
critical Internet, intranet and Extranet applications. To corporations that are concerned with the
security of their online services, appSQA provides the best line of defense when implementing
ecommerce, Internet banking and transactional delivery of administrative services.
The appSQA service includes program security
testing and a thorough review of programming source code for Internet/
Web applications written in programming languages such as Perl, C, C++,
Visual Basic or Java. Taking into account the known security risks for
a particular platform and the latest security patches, our professional
code auditors implement a series of tests on the program to locate any
security weakness or breach of corporate security policy within the application.
The auditors perform a line-by-line inspection of the
programming source code to identify new problems relating to security.
In addition, they look for any malicious code that employs helper
programs on a user's hard disk to access unauthorized files and deliver
them to the application's author.
Once the testing and code inspection phases are
completed, the auditors generate a comprehensive, easy-to-read report
detailing the code deficiencies uncovered in the analysis. If warranted,
some suggestions on the ways to remedy the problems might be included in
The appSQA service only checks for flaws in
programming which may lead to security breaches. It does not involve any
quality assurance testing for program functionality or presentation. In
other words, we will only test your program to see if it violates system
integrity, not to see if it performs correctly.
The price of appSQA service depends on many factors,
such as the operating system used, the complexity of programming language,
the programming culture and QA control of the development team. The exact
price for the appSQA project can only be obtained if at least a 300-line
sample code has been submitted to ADDSecure.Net. But generally our charge
for such work starts from US$5 per line of code. A minimal charge
