Sit back and let AI test your code

Afterwork seminar


LEVEL: Intermediate

In this presentation we learn how a real world tool called AFL - American Fuzzy Lop - uses genetic algorithm to automatically find test cases to identify security vulnerabilities. 

During the presentation we use a vulnerable simple program to demonstrate the tool but AFL is used to find serious security bugs in browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer), operating systems (Linux kernel, Android, iOS, openBSD), database software (mysql, sqlite), web servers (Apache, Nginx) and many other software (PHP, OpenSSH, OpenSSL).
