Book of the Month – Fuzzing: Brute Force Vulnerability Discovery

Fuzzing is the most powerful and quick method to expose the security flaws in any product. In that direction, this is the first book which attempted to cover all aspects of fuzzing.  Written by prominent authors who mastered this field, the book not only explains the fundamentals but rich with practical examples too.

Authors start with explaining the Fuzzing, automating the tests and then go on explaining in detail various type of fuzzing including web fuzzing, file format fuzzing, network fuzzing, browser fuzzing, in-memory fuzzing etc. It is filled with numerous case studies, each one showcasing the unique vulnerability and its detection using fuzzing technique.
