Course Description

Bugs in software costs the economy billions of dollars each year. In this course, Security for Hackers and Developers: Fuzzing, you are going to turn the tide by learning how to find and fix critical bugs quicker. Hackers have long used a technique called fuzzing to find bugs and software makers must do the same. First, you'll learn about mutation and generation fuzzing. Next, you'll explore monitoring, parallel fuzzing, and in-memory fuzzing. Finally, the course will wrap up with you learning about feedback fuzzing. By the end this course, you'll know how to fuzz programs in multiple ways. You'll know the pros and cons of each technique, and be able to make wise choices for your security program.
