MSF Introduces Robustness Testing at LTE IOT Event

At the upcoming LTE IOT interoperability event, MSF will introduce robustness testing. MSF is the first industry forum to include security testing in its program. The MSF LTE IOT event will take place March 15-26.

Robustness is introduced at the interoperability event to raise awareness of the need to test products proactively before the release and during development. MSF has a long tradition of organizing successful interoperability events. Goal of security testing is to increase awareness on security issues and to provide participating companies information on potential security vulnerabilities.

The main strength of Robustness testing is its ability to discover unknown vulnerabilities, in addition finding known bugs. Most security solutions today only look for known vulnerabilities. However, even though it is important to remove known bugs, unknown ones cause a greater security threat, because there are no available patches for them. Once an attack is discovered, it takes time to locate the bug and to prepare a fix for it; meanwhile the malicious users are free to continue their attacks.

Robustness testing, or Fuzzing, is a very effective method to test software robustness, because it targets the security problems attackers would also look for and find. Fuzzing is basically doing what the attackers would do, but before the product is released in a secure environment. In robustness testing, large numbers of protocol messages (tens or hundreds of thousands) containing exceptional elements are used to simulate malicious attacks. Fuzzing is a quick, proactive and easy way of assessing software security.

Codenomicon Defensics is the market leading proactive fuzzing tool. The state-of-the-art protocol modeling and test generation technique ensures market leading test coverage and test efficiency. Defensics provides better test results by finding more security issues, and in less time. Protocol sequence and test case editing permits you to customize test cases and scenarios. General purpose tools such as Traffic Capture Fuzzer and Defensics for XML enable users to test any type of proprietary protocol as well as and SOAP/XML applications. Defensics products are easy to integrate into existing tool libraries provided by third parties. Moreover, the comprehensive reporting capabilities and flexible licensing models enable reporting and reproduction capabilities across the entire software development organization.
