Mobile Testing | Live Demo : Mobile automated testing on iOS and Android by J. Asensio & J. Desmulier 

As the mobile applications and mobile users are growing rapidly, it is indeed for testing experts to come up with effective verification techniques to ensure reliability of these mobile apps. They'll will demonstrate a customized mobile test automation framework using Appium and Cucumber we have created to cope with the diversity of a mobile app environment.

Virtualization Testing | Test Early...Test often...Test continuously 

Software testing can be a bottleneck or a competitive advantage, depending on an organization approach. Many DevOps teams are adopting the right capabilities and best practices to achieve continuous testing as a part of their DevOps transformation. And they’re seeing solid improvements in their speed and quality. 

Continuous testing relies on test automation integrated as part of a deployment process where software is validated in realistic test environments. 
Adding service virtualization to the mix allows teams to shift left. Service virtualization simulates the behavior of selected components within an application to enable end-to-end testing of the application as a whole. Combining test automation with service virtualization enables teams to test applications end to end providing immediate feedback on quality —so issues can be resolved earlier and at a lower cost. 

In this session, we will share our views on the value add that Services Virtualization brings to testing projects.

Security Testing | New Security Testing Challenges : Bug Bounty & IOT by C. Messeguer & P. Stiehl

The presentation will address 2 topics: Bug Bounty & IOT.

First, they'll explain how we are able to detect security vulnerabilities induced by the IoT and its new uses : presentation of the Digital Security Lab, methodology, material & report after security audit of 100 IoT solutions by Digital Security. Finally, they'll also present what is a bug bounty : challenges , advantages , european rules and constaints , presentation of

Automated & Security Testing | Requirements-Driven Automated Security Testing by F. Pastore & L. Briand

Companies assess the security of their software systems by relying on security experts. The effectiveness of testing activities mostly depends on the capability and experience of the security experts, who are in charge of identifying the security requirements to test and then choose the methods and technologies to adopt in order to perform such testing. Therefore, companies have limited means to perform and evaluate thorough and systematic security testing activities. Such a situation necessarily leads to a great deal of uncertainty regarding security guarantees. Were all the security requirements identified? Were all the usage scenarios considered during testing? Did the testing process cover all relevant attack patterns?

To support companies in gaining a better control over security testing activities, and help security experts derive effective testing campaigns, we have developed a methodology and a toolchain for the identification and testing of security requirements that support the automated generation of security test cases. Our methodology includes the definition of misuse cases and security use cases, while our toolchain relies on metaheuristic search and machine learning to build attack vectors that spot application specific problems.

This talk will present and illustrate our approach with examples based on our experience with industrial partners, e.g., the identification of application-specific code injection attacks that go through protection mechanisms.
