Fuzz testing is an industry-standard technique for locating unknown vulnerabilities in software. Fuzz testing is mandatory portion of many modern secure software development life cycles (SDLCs), such as those used at Adobe, Cisco Systems and Microsoft. This document provides a framework to assess the maturity of your processes, software, systems and devices. At the heart of this document is a vendor-agnostic maturity model for fuzz testing that maps metrics and procedures of effective fuzz testing to maturity levels. The maturity model is a lingua franca for talking about fuzzing, allowing different organizations to communicate effectively about fuzzing without being tied to specific tools.
The Fuzz Testing Maturity Model (FTMM) gives builders and buyers a set of standard levels for communicating about fuzz testing.
Synopsys solutions help deliver a more comprehensive security offering for the SDLC by adding black box testing capabilities, including the Codenomicon Defensics® tool for file and protocol fuzz testing, and the Codenomicon AppCheck™ tool for software composition analysis and vulnerability assessment.
