Research on Android security apps found that most application source codes are easily deciphered by reverse engineering.
The attackers are using binary inspection tools to gain access to the application’s internal information, which may reveal the backend servers, cryptographic constants and intellectual property.
Traditional waterfall methodology lacks security measures due to the inspection being done at its final stage. The counter-intuitive approach to preventing such attacks is implementing security measures during development phase.
DevOps approach in constant deployment, test and automated pipelines will support finding bugs and repeat itself when a build is ready to deploy. Using management tools like Jira to track the processes makes sure there are no issues left behind without properly logging and documenting.
