Details

Fuzzing is a technique to find software defects by providing random(ish) input to a system, and watching to see which patterns of input cause bad behavior.

The paper is "Fuzzing: The State of the Art", available here:
http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a558209.pdf

The talk will go over the history of fuzzing, different methods of fuzzing, and how fuzzing can be applicable to your everyday life.
