Application Security is a broad and deep topic that few Testers or Developers ever master.

A new approach to Application Security has arrived that turns our traditional testing model inside-out. Now we can integrate security tools with the code and components inside applications. Instead of scanning and probing an application from the outside, we can make security attributes report out to us from inside the application itself. Security becomes part of the code and operates in continuous real-time.

Here Declan O’Riordan tells the story of the first UK implementation of Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST). It was the joint winner (with Zeger Van Hese) of the ‘Best Paper’ award at EuroSTAR 2016 in Stockholm.
