PerformFuzz The Web Interface

“PerformFuzz” is unique technique that looks at the “Performance & Security” of rapidly growing software application’s web interface. This session describes a malicious technique known as “Fuzzing” , its impact on a web interface availability & performance like Denial of Economic Resources (DoER) & Crash(DoS).

By targeting the web interface, an attacker may not only try to make the application unavailable but may also try to hamper its performance. As most applications have a web interface, that works as a hotspot gateway for any attacker to perform malicious activities.

The session will talk of a research case study, expected mitigations and also the impact on Cloud Clients. The session will present a new security test, that can be included in performance test suite.
