​Performing a source code review is one of the best ways to find security issues in an application. But how do you do it?

First, what are the main concepts that you should be familiar with before diving into code review? And where do you even start reviewing code? What strategies are there to identify different types of vulnerabilities? Are there any ways to automate the process?

In this talk, I will go through the basics of how to review an application’s source code to find vulnerabilities and introduce some strategies to review your application.
