Medical Device Cybersecurity – Fuzz Testing
October 5, 2016
What is fuzz testing? Sounds like something a sweater manufacturer or stuffed toy maker might perform. Not really…
Fuzz testing or fuzzing is a testing technique for locating unknown vulnerabilities and other defects by sending malformed and unexpected inputs to software. Then the responses of the software are analyzed. In this analysis of the responses, vulnerabilities may be identified. Some of the vulnerabilities may be zero day.
Since medical device hacking seems to be on everyone’s mind (just watch CSI: Cyber or any other show), please feel free to read the report by MDISS (see URL above).
