Course description

The course begins by teaching the theory, as well as Python implementation, for naive and smart fuzzing, including the topics of code coverage, mutation and genetic algorithms for fuzzing. We will then write a custom evolutionary fuzzer that employs machine learning to fuzz a target, as well as understand the machine learning behind and usage of the famous fuzzer AFL. Finally, you will be given an assignment to hone your skills with fuzzing.
