Testing for software security is a lengthy, complex and costly process. Currently, security testing is done using penetration analysis and formal verification of security kernels. These methods are not complete and are difficult to use. Hence it is essential to focus testing effort in areas that have a greater number of security vulnerabilities to develop… (More)
