    Fuzz testing is a technique to automatically provide random, malformed, and unexpected data to a system in order to test its robustness. Fuzzing can be an incredibly powerful technique in detecting flaws and weaknesses in the implementations of communication protocols. Using commercially available tools, or developing your own is usually communication protocol specific, which can be cumbersome and rigid. This talk discusses how machine learning algorithms can be leveraged to rapidly and automatically reverse engineer and fuzz any communication protocol. This proposed approach would result in an easier to build and more flexible to use fuzz testing tool.

    Takeaway

    Learn how existing machine learning algorithms can be applied to the field of cyber security.
    Learn about:
    1) Fuzz testing
    2) Disadvantages of conventional fuzz testing
    3) How machine learning can be leveraged to perform robust fuzz testing
