I need to perform a security code review on a huge Swift application. I have done many mobile penetration tests before and some code review but never on iOS Swift Apps. I am primarily looking for information and reference material which will help me answer the two questions:

  1. Could you provide information on how to conduct a source code reviews of Swift and Swift code for security flaws.

  2. What would be a good approach for automating the source code review using either static or dymanic analysis of the source code?

    The problem is that such questions (both: asking for product recommendations and for references to outside materials) are off-topic here. – techraf Jul 7 '16 at 9:14

I encourage you try out https://www.kiuwan.com It has out of the box custom rules for Swift, it allows for custom rule creation and has scored the highest benchmark on Owasp for SAST vendors. Disclaimer: I work there


A quick google search brought me to Tailor I have never used it though. Also Hp Fortify and Checkmarx can help scan your code but do involve huge upfront cost.
