A source code security audit is a powerful methodology for locating and removing security vulnerabilities. An audit can be used to pass potentially prioritized list of vulnerabilities to developers exploit vulnerabilities or provide proof-of-concepts for potential vulnerabilities. The security audit research currently remains disjoint with minor discussion of methodologies utilized in the field. This paper assembles a broad array of literature to promote standardizing source code security audits techniques. It, then, explores a case study using the aforementioned techniques.
