SEATTLE, Aug. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Lightship Security, an Ottawa, Canada based consulting and advisory firm, alongside Peach Tech, a Seattle, US based security software firm, are proud to announce their partnership to support customers in their pursuit of product certification against the internationally recognized security standard, Common Criteria (CC).
CC (ISO 15408) is the leading international standard designed to evaluate and certify the security robustness of software products and devices, such as operating systems, gateway devices, firewalls, and PC security tools. One way the CC accomplishes this is through the specification of 'Protection Profiles' that define a uniform set of security functions and test activities for a given technology. Recent Protection Profiles have required products to be fuzz tested as part of the vulnerability assessment portion of the certification process (e.g. Collaborative Protection Profile for Network Devices, v2.0).
Fuzz testing is a security testing technique used to identify unknown vulnerabilities, coding errors, and security loop holes. By injecting copious amounts of random and malformed data, called fuzz, into a test target, a quality assurance or security professional attempts to cause a crash or failure. In review of the data arising from the crash, engineers and developers can enhance the overall security robustness of their products.
Peach Tech has developed and maintains the industry-leading fuzz testing platform named Peach Fuzzer. The Peach Fuzzer platform uses automated generative and mutational modeling and intelligent test case generation to reveal the hidden bugs that other testing methods miss. Outputs of detailed reports provide the information customers need to find and fix potential security threats.
