Fuzzing is a technique of identifying software vulnerabilities by automated corpus generation. During this training, attendees would be emulating techniques that would provide a comprehensive understanding of "Crash, Detect & Triage" of fuzzed binaries or software. In "Deep dive into fuzzing" we will be covering a detailed overview of fuzzing and how it can be beneficial to professionals in uncovering security vulnerabilities with a hands-on approach through a focus on labs.
