Mobile App Test Attacks to Efficiently Explore Software
Get a copy of these slides here.
In the tradition of James Whittaker’s book series How to Break … Software, Jon Hagar applies the testing “attack” concept to the domain of mobile app software. Jon defines the sub-domain of mobile software and examines industry product failure caused by defects in that software. Next, Jon summarizes a set of attacks against mobile software based on these common modes of failure that testers can direct against their own app software to quickly find bugs. Specific attack methods identified include developer based cases, computation and control structures for batteries and sensor hubs, hardware-software interfaces, and communications. This session is based on the book: “Software Test Attacks to Break Mobile and Embedded Devices” CRC press, 2013
