Setting the Plan for Implementing Fuzzers into a Software Development Lifecycle

When embarking on the journey that is fuzzing, it’s important as a software vendor to properly plan. There is a high likelihood that at some point someone externally will be running a fuzzer over your application, so it is imperative that you understand how your fuzzing effort will fit into your product’s development lifecycle or risk public humiliation. Leaving it to be done ad-hoc means that there will likely be both duplicated efforts and uncovered testing—the latter of which will eventually bite you in the ass.

Setting Goals

Setting the goals for your fuzzing effort requires answering the questions “who,” “what,” “when,” “how,” and “why?” Why is covered earlier in this chapter and throughout the book, and the others are discussed here.
