This paper highlights and critically reviews the research works related to quality in audit, in particular, software license audit from the perspective of internal control and security. The paper examines existing studies in the field with a view to identifying future research opportunities in relation to software license auditing. Moreover, security implications and challenges in the context of software auditing, and a set of recommendations are provided.
