Zen And The Art Of Security Testing
Some security experts would tell you that security testing is very different from functional or non-functional software testing. They are wrong. Having worked on both sides, Paco gives 3 specific recommendations for how testers can make significant contributions to the security of their software and applications by making small changes to the way they do their software testing. The first technique has to do with selecting points in the user journey that are ripe for security testing. The second is to leverage some common free tools that enable security tests. The final technique is adjusting old school boundary value testing and equivalence class partitioning to incorporate security tests. The result is a lot of security testing done and issues fixed long before any security specialists arrive.
