CSI Pune Lecture: Security Testing Using Models – 16 Jan 6:30pm


What: CSI Pune Lecture on Security Testing Using Models with Prof. Padmanabhan Krishnan, Bond University, Australia.
When: Friday, 16th Jan, 6:30pm-8:30pm
Where: Dewang Mehta Auditorium, Persistent, S.B. Road
Registration and Fees: Free for CSI/ISACA members; Rs. 50 for students & Persistent employees; others Rs. 100. Register at http://csi-pune.org

In this, we present a framework based on model based testing for security vulnerabilities testing. Security vulnerabilities are not only related to security functionalities at the application level but are sensitive to implementation details. Thus traditional model based approaches which remove implementation details are by themselves inadequate for testing security vulnerabilities. We demonstrate a framework that retains the advantages of model based testing that exposes only the necessary details relevant for vulnerability testing.

Our framework has three sub-models: a model or specification of the key aspects of the application, a model about the relevant aspects of the implementation and a model of the attacker. These three models are them combined to generate test cases. The same approach can also be used to test if a system meets a privacy policy.

Who Should Attend: Professionals interested in Test Automation and students.
