—Random testing is a low cost strategy that can be applied to a wide range of testing problems. While the cost and straightforward application of random testing are appealing, these benefits must be evaluated against the reduced effectiveness due to the generality of the approach. Recently, a number of novel techniques, coined Adaptive Random Testing, have(More)
Although Random Testing (RT) is low cost and straightforward, its effectiveness is not satisfactory. To increase the effectiveness of RT, researchers have developed Adaptive Random Testing (ART) and Quasi-Random Testing (QRT) methods which attempt to maximize the test case coverage of the input domain. This paper proposes the use of Centroidal Voronoi(More)
Cookies, the HTTP state management mechanism, are the backbone of many web applications. Despite a high adoption rate, cookies have remained virtually unexplored by the academic community. This paper presents an EBNF grammatical definition and a three- tiered testing strategy for cookies. The testing strategy builds upon anti-random and grammar-based(More)
AbstRAct This article outlines a four-point strategy for the development of secure Web-based applications within an agile development framework and introduces strategies to mitigate security risks that are commonly present in Web-based applications. The proposed strategy includes the representation of security requirements as test cases supported by the(More)
Cookies are used by over 80% of Web applications utilizing dynamic Web application frameworks. Applications deploying cookies must be rigorously verified to ensure that the application is robust and secure. Given the intense time-to-market pressures faced by modern Web applications, testing strategies that are low cost and automatable are required.(More)
