Fuzz testing aka fuzzing is a dynamic software testing mechanism designed to detect a wide spectrum of bugs and potential security vulnerabilities from memory corruption to deadlocks, from undefined behavior to exception handling. In combination with appropriate program instrumentation, fuzzing has proven its effectiveness to software developers, security validators as well as security researchers. Although, fuzzing can greatly assist in bug finding, it has its own sets of challenges such as coverage wall, effective input generation etc. In this talk, we will explore the common roadblocks in fuzzing and some of the best practices to overcome these challenges as well as how to best utilize the potential of fuzzing to find bugs and security vulnerabilities. In addition, this talk will highlight how fuzzing can be adopted in the firmware domain despite the tight coupling with the target hardware platform.
