The authors review how fuzzing works and outline its advantages over other security testing methods. They introduce state-of-the-art fuzzing techniques for finding vulnerabilities in a variety of applications. The book also walks readers through the development of a variety of open source fuzzing tools that have been developed exclusively for this publication. Fuzzing demonstrates the use of automated fuzzing tools, and presents several insightful case histories showing the fuzzing technique at work. Whether you're a developer, security engineer, tester, or QA specialist, Fuzzing: Brute Force Vulnerability Discovery provides important information on how to successfully build secure software.
