Static Code Analysis is the technique of automatically analyzing the application’s source and binary code to find security vulnerabilities. Two categories exist in this realm: Binary Code Analysis (BCA) and Source Code Analysis (SCA).

Both offerings promise to deliver security and the requirement of incorporating security into the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Faced with the BCA vs SCA dilemma, which should you choose?

Static Code Analysis is the technique of automatically analyzing the application’s source and binary code to find security vulnerabilities. Two categories exist in this realm:?

  • Binary – or Byte- Code Analysis (BCA)- Analyzes the binary/ byte code that is created by the compiler.
  • Source Code Analysis (SCA)- Analyzes the actual source code of the program without the requirement of retrieving all code for a compilation.
