Fuzz testing or fuzzing is a software testing technique that provides random data ("fuzz") to the inputs of a program. If the program fails (for example, by crashing, or by failing built-in code assertions) the defects can be noted. By simulating real attacks coming from the Internet, fuzzers can be used to test the effectiveness and security of your perimeter defenses as well as other security solutions. Fuzzing takes penetration testing to a new level. It is already used by finance and government sectors in assessing their critical networks. Find out the potential value of fuzzing test results and learn how realistic and usable these results are in environments where detecting all imaginable attacks would be impossible.
