Code Examples

Compliant code

The application verifies the credit card is valid using all the information (Number, expiry date and security code)

const accessCreditCards = (req, res) => {
if (isValidNumber(req.body.creditCardInfo)) {
//Sending credit card information based on CC info and user Id
const creditCards = listCards(req.body.creditCardinfo, req.body.userId);

Non compliant code

The application only checks the CC number before accesing a list of them

const accessCreditCards = (req, res) => {
if (isValidNumber(req.body.creditCard)) {
//Sending credit card information based only on CC number
const creditCards = listCards(req.body.creditCard);
