Source code tools are one of those tools for security reasons at most. The source code tools are basically tools used for analyzing the source code, which helps in finding the serious security break in the system source code. These types of tools are basically used by the analyst during the coding job. The source code tools make sure that the security loops are properly filled up. The feedback of these types of tools is almost immediate, and the feedback helps in the rectification of the security loop holes during the development of the software.
Although there are some advantages and cons added to these types of source code tools, like taking the advantages at first, these tools helps in the proper scaling job of the proper development of the software. Several issues are taken into account such as SQL and buffer overflows and even injection flaws are overtaken by these tools. Taking into account of the cons added to this software like access controls, authentications issues are a hard nut to crack during the development of the software.
False positive detection rate is also quite higher in this case which leads to misinterpretation. Non compiled codes are not easily detectable by the source code tools during the development of the software. There is loads of source code available in the market like Find bug, FX cop etc. The utilization of the source code tools are indeed of great use even though it needs further enhancements in the near future.
