Get the buzz on fuzz testing in software development
Did you know fuzzing is a great way to spot vulnerabilities and bugs in your software? If you're thinking about adding this technique to your software testing toolkit (or taking it to the next level), our second Tool Talk episode can help!
Used extensively by security researchers, fuzzing (aka fuzz testing) has become popular with software developers too. And for good reason. Fuzzing utilities are available for a wide variety of use cases and can be left running for days at a time with minimal interaction.
Want to learn more about fuzzing, see it in action, and start using it in your own projects? Watch the on-demand Tool Talk with Bishop Fox Senior Security Consultant Matt Keeley.
In this Tool Talk, Matt covers:
- Fuzzing basics — what is it and how it works
- Fuzzer types and methods — and the pros and cons of each
- Fuzzing structure
- Fuzzing targets and harnesses
- Popular fuzzing tools
Matt is using fuzzing to uncover vulnerabilities in real open-source software and provide resources for you to try it yourself!
