About the talk:
Fuzzing is a commonly used technique among security engineers to find bugs and vulnerabilities in code. Its effectiveness has been proven over time to the point where some projects and companies have mandatory fuzzing coverage. The most common issue with fuzzing is that it is seen as a low-level arcane practice that does not apply to memory safe languages or that only hackers can use.With this session I will explain what fuzzing is, why it is useful and how to apply it to your code. I will provide detailed instructions and examples to get the attendees up and running to make their code more robust, correct and trustworthy.
