The process of fuzzing has changed, from multation, to frameworks, to the constraint solving (CS) and genetic algorithms (GA) of today. While pre-written suites and custom one-offs can be great, GAs (AFL/Clusterfuzz) and CS (Sage/MSRD) often do the best – and we?ll drop serious vulns in this talk to prove it. These tools are paired best with scale – fuzzing-as-a-service (FaaS). It?s time to exposure your code before attackers do. But it?s still not a perfectly simple endeavor. We will explain harnesses; how to pick seeds; which portions of the app to target, CI/CD, and much more. We?ll look at an exciting, new DAST tool:
