Security Testing, SAST, IAST & DAST

It´s time to remember the basic concepts.

Let´s start with Security Testing, what does it means?

Security Testing it is a software testing that will guarantee security for your applications and software systems. This means, protection from any threats, no vulnerabilities in your code, ensuring a secure SDLC.

You won´t need to worry about stolen information or big losses once you start using Security Testing. You can choose the application that fits perfectly to your company or project needs.

SAST: Static Application Security Testing.

Also known as White box testing, is an analysis at the source code for vulnerabilities detection. Moreover, is a static analysis because it takes place when the program isn´t running.

This kind of tool, SAST, helps to find vulnerabilities at an early stage, helping developers to develop an efficient code and secure system.

DAST: Dynamic Application Security Testing.

Known as Black Box testing, is an analysis carried out during the execution of the application. It consists in doing a Pentesting, a set of attacks to the application to see how it reacts so therefore the tool would show the application´s vulnerabilities list. This analysis would prevent hacker attacks.

IAST: Interactive Application Security testing.

The Grey Box Testing, is the application´s interactive analysis, in other words it will be monitoring the application, searching for vulnerabilities when the users are interacting the application.

Each application adjusts for different objectives, sometimes you can get a great result with just one of them, or try more than one to ensure a high security.
