Test and Verification -> Application tests: Security unit tests for important components

Risk and Opportunity

Risk: Vulnerabilities are rising due to code changes.
Opportunity: Usage of unit tests to test important security related features like authentication and authorization.

Additional Information

Implementation hints

Comments: The integration of module tests takes place during development instead, it highlights vulnerabilities in sub-routines, functions, modules, libraries etc. checked. A sample implementation of unit tests are explained in the video [Shift-Left-Security with the Security Test Pyramid - Andreas Falk]( starting with minute 9.
