SnapFuzz: New fuzzing tool speeds up testing of network applications


SnapFuzz employs a number of strategies to accelerate network protocol testing and overcome the time constraints and other limitations that make fuzzing networking applications difficult.

The researchers told The Daily Swig that “most network applications are stateful.” “Stateful apps have side effects, in the sense that they perform actions that affect the application’s environment, and these changes can obstruct the fuzzing process.”
