Static Code Analysis
Static Code Analysis Overview
What is Static Code Analysis?Static Code Analysis is one component of software code testing and debugging. Static code analysis means that the code is analyzed without actually running the program. The idea behind this kind of debugging is to understand the structure of the code and make sure that it adheres to industry standards.
Static Code Analysis tools are run against the source code to highlight possible vulnerabilities. These tools frequently allow developers to hone in on portions of the code that might be problematic, rather than simply finding flaws.
This is often the first step in code testing.
