Web Application Testing in 2022: What You Need to Know

As we move further into 2022, the world of web application testing is changing. We are seeing new challenges and opportunities as businesses become more reliant on online applications. In this blog post, we will discuss the latest trends in web application testing and how you can prepare your business for the future.


Difference Between Black-Box Testing & White-Box Testing

A developer goes through different development and deployment rules for creating applications. Testing is an essential step in the development cycle. When it comes to software testing, many techniques need to be used from time to time. Yet the confusion around white, grey, and black testing techniques are most common among all software testing techniques. They often appear similar, yet the differences between them are very jarring.


Open Source Security Testing Tools

Security tools are an essential part of software development today, especially with the ever-increasing number of attacks we see every year. According to Check Point Research, we saw 50% more attacks per week on corporate networks than the previous year. Therefore, utilising open source security tools can be a massive benefit to any organisation.


Best SAST Tools: Top 7 Solutions Compared

Static application security testing (SAST) tools automatically scan the source code of an application. The goal is to identify vulnerabilities before deployment. SAST tools perform white-box testing, which involves analyzing the code based on inside knowledge of the application. SAST offers granularity in detecting vulnerabilities, providing an assessment down to the line of code.


How Can Security Testing Fit Within Agile Development?

As software developers and associated business analysts are shifting more and more towards satisfying customer needs by providing them with a better quality product, they are consequently moving towards an agile mindset. Firms are changing the way they function to allow customer needs to be integrated not only into the final product and stages of sales but also all throughout the process of development of a product.

The Battlefield vs Red Teaming - Where the Skills Collide!

It was early 2003 in central Iraq, a couple of hours before dawn, 30 degree heat, and everything had a green tint through the night vision goggles. I was on an operation with a team from the US Psychological Operations forces (psyops) and an ODA (Operational Detachment Alpha) from the US Special Forces. We'd spent days gathering HUMINT (Human Intelligence) and undertaking reconnaissance on the target. The ODA team was set up for the assault, the psyops were ready to run diversionary tactics and I was on the team providing comms and perimeter security. Authorisation was given from above, the operation began, and the sky lit up with tracer rounds.


How a Generalized Validation Testing Approach Improves Efficiency, Boosts Outcomes and Streamlines Debugging

In two recent blog posts from the CrowdStrike Software Development Engineers in Test (SDET) team, we explored how end-to-end validation testing and modular testing design could increase the speed and accuracy of the testing lifecycle. In this latest post, we conclude our SDET series with a deep dive on how our generalized validation testing component improves efficiency, enhances product functionality and streamlines troubleshooting.
