Evolutionary Fuzzing System

Just thought I should post this before it disappears into the void that is my backups...

Evolutionary Fuzzing System is a pretty cool concept pioneered by Jared D. DeMott, et al, this paper shows a bit different approach to DeMott's using GPF (General Purpose Fuzzer) as a proof of concept.

Get the paper here: Evolutionary Fuzzing System
Get the modified GPF here: GPF-Mutate

Abstract: Evolutionary Negative Testing is an increasingly popular method for testing software whose source code may not be available. One of the first tools of this kind is the Evolutionary Fuzzing System. This paper presents an addition to the system called Mutation Reliant Evolutionary Fuzzer and explores possibilities for increasing code coverage and vulnerability discovery.

Hi Javier,

I have tried to run EFS,it is ok with the Linux part (GPF E and M)but i have problem with the modified Paimei when i try to stalk and when creating port 31338 to listen.

Could you please tell me how you managed to do your test case.

take a look at the original documentation: http://www.vdalabs.com/tools/efs_gpf.html also, you may want to check out some youtube videos for tips n tricks for using PaiMei. Hope that helps. I haven't touched this work in a while, sorry...
