Fuzzinator Random Testing Framework
Random Testing Framework
Fuzzinator is a fuzzing framework that helps you to automate tasks usually needed during a fuzz session:
run your favorite test generator and feed the test cases to the system-under-test,
catch and save the unique issues,
reduce the failing test cases,
ease the reporting of issues in bug trackers (e.g., Bugzilla or GitHub),
regularly update SUTs if needed, and
schedule multiple SUTs and generators without overloading your workstation.
All the above features are fully customizable either by writing a simple config file or by implementing Python snippets to cover special needs. Check out some slides about Fuzzinator for a general overview, or see the Tutorial for a detailed walk-through on the config files.
To help tracking the progress of the fuzzing, Fuzzinator provides two interfaces:
an interactive TUI (supported on Linux and Mac OS X) that gives a continuously updated overview about the currently running tasks, statistics about the efficacy of the test generators, and the found issues (and also supports reporting them); and
a dump-mode (supported on every platform) that displays the news on line-based consoles.
Although Fuzzinator itself doesn’t come with test generators (except for an example random character sequence generator), you can find a list of useful generators in the wiki.
The quick way:
pip install fuzzinator
Alternatively, by cloning the project and running setuptools:
python setup.py install
A common form of Fuzzinator’s usage:
fuzzinator --tui -U <path/to/the/config.ini>
Fuzzinator was tested on:
Linux (Ubuntu 14.04 / 15.10 / 16.04)
Mac OS X (OS X El Capitan - 10.11).
The authors are immensely grateful to Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz for the continuous inspiration.
