Finding Business Logic Flaws

Business logic flaws are application vulnerabilities that result from faulty application logic. These flaws are very different from technical vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection (SQLi) because they are specific to an application and the business domain.

Business Logic Flaws Require a New Approach

Traditional static application security testing (SAST) cannot detect business logic flaws because it does not understand the unique aspects of your code, such as business domain workflow, logic of the programmer, and the ways in which the business logic can be tampered with or bypassed.

Find Hard-Coded Secrets and Literals

Find Hard-Coded Secrets and Literals

Hard coded usernames, passwords, tokens, API keys, and other secrets in the source code are an increasingly common security risk. ShiftLeft Inspect can easily detect these literals as soon as the pull request is created to prevent them from going into production. Now, it’s one thing to grep for these patterns but this will cause false positives because there are legitimate use cases such as authentication where secrets are needed. So it’s crucial to understand whether the secrets are mishandled in the application to identify issues.

Detect Sensitive Data Leaks

Detect Sensitive Data Leaks

Data leakage is one of the fastest growing problems in AppSec. PII data, encryption keys, social security numbers, and financial information are all prized targets. ShiftLeft identifies, classifies, and maps all critical data flows across your applications and microservices to determine improper data handling and leakage. It does this not by looking for values on the wire for that would be too noisy. Instead it uses variable names in code to identify sensitive data.

Prevent Insider Threats

Prevent Insider Threats

Modern software development architectures make applications particularly vulnerable to insider attacks due to their complexities and dependencies. ShiftLeft Inspect helps detect insider attacks such as logic bombs, rootkits, secret inputs, and security misconfigurations.

Ensure Regulatory Compliance

Regulations such as GDPR and CCPA require organizations to secure sensitive data ranging from financial information to web browsing history. ShiftLeft Inspect can identify and help ensure that regulated information is properly secured in your applications.

Detect Business Logic Flow Bypasses

Detect Business Logic Flow Bypasses

By bypassing the normal logic flow of an application, an attacker can make the application do things it was not intended to. These include elevated permissions through authorization bypasses and accessing sensitive information through insecure direct object references (IDORs). ShiftLeft’s Code Property Graph can map the end-to-end flows within an application and help find any conditions that lead to logic flow bypass.

Free for an Unlimited Number of Apps & Frameworks

ShiftLeft Inspect is free for up to 200,000 lines of code and 300 scans per year.
