Presented by

Jonathan Davis, Security Consultant, AsTech Consulting

About this talk

External penetration testing of Internet facing applications provides a valuable but limited perspective. Source code assessment, either manual or automated, delivers a more comprehensive understanding of vulnerabilities. The most efficient discovery methodology will combine the best of both these approaches. We discuss a method for performing hybrid assessments in which the results of some level of source code analysis drives the penetration testing process. This will maximize Return on Security Investment.
