For the security people, the secondary goal is to analyze those found flaws for exploitability. 7). Issues created in the specification or design phase are fundamental flaws that are very difficult to fix. Manufacturing defects are created by bad practices and mistakes in implementing a product. Finally, deployment flaws are caused by default settings and bad documentation on how the product can be deployed securely. Looking at these phases, and analyzing them from the experience gained with known mistakes, we can see that implementation mistakes prevail.

The hottest trends in fuzzing seem to be related to communication interfaces that have just recently been developed. One reason for that could be that those technologies are most immature, and therefore security flaws are easy to find in them. Some very interesting technologies for fuzzers include • • • • • Next Generation Networks (Triple-Play) such as VoIP and IPTV; IPv6 and related protocols; Wireless technologies such as WiFi, WiMAX, Bluetooth, and RFID; Industrial networks (SCADA); Vehicle Area Networks such as CAN and MOST.

Unfortunately, traditional security requirements are feature-driven and do not really strike a chord with fuzzing. Typical and perhaps the most common subset of security requirements or security goals consists of the following: confidentiality, integrity, and availability. Fuzzing directly focuses on only one of these, namely availability, although many vulnerabilities found using fuzzing can also compromise confidentiality and integrity by allowing an attacker to execute malicious code on the system.
