Codenomicon, a vendor of software security testing tools, has released a toolkit for automated penetration testing.
When conducted manually, penetration testing requires substantial knowledge of the systems being tested.Codenomicon's penetration testing toolkit utilizes a unique fuzz testing technique, which learns the tested system automatically enabling penetration testers to enter new domains such as VoIP assessment or to start testing industrial automation solutions and wireless technologies. Test automation increases the test coverage of penetration tests.
One of the key components of the penetration testing solution is the Codenomicon Network Analyzer, which lets you map real network traffic and to determine what really needs to be tested. It automates the work-flow for threat analysis and attack surface analysis. Thus, you can target your tests and reduce test run times without compromising test coverage.
The penetration kit is an adjustable package with flexible project-based licensing. The test suite package contains a combination of systematic model-based fuzzers, including Codenomicon's Defensics Traffic Capture and XML Fuzzers that let you test any protocol or XML application.
