Application architecture review can be defined as reviewing the current security controls in the application architecture. This helps a user to identify potential security flaws at an early stage and mitigate them before starting the development stage. Poor design of architecture may expose the application to many security loopholes. It is preferable to perform the architecture review at the design stage, as the cost and effort required for implementing security after development are high.
Architecture is “the fundamental organization of a system, embodied in its components, its relationships to each other and the environment, and the principles governing its design and evolution”. Depending on the context, it can also be defined as “a formal description of a system, or “a detailed plan of the system at the component level to guide its implementation” or “the structure of components, their inter-relationships, and the principles and guidelines governing their design and evolution over time”.
