Bernhard Garn at IWCT 2014
Bernhard Garn presents the paper “Eris: A Tool for Combinatorial Testing of the Linux System Call Interface” at IWCT 2014 (The 3rd International Workshop on Combinatorial Testing), which takes place in conjunction with the International Conference on Software Testing (ICST 2014, March 31 – April 4) in Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
In this paper, we show the applicability of combinatorial testing to the system call interface of the Linux kernel. Our approach is two-fold: first we analyze the TRINITY fuzz tester and in the aftermath we adapt the input parameter modeling of TRINITY to the field of combinatorial testing. Furthermore, apart from the modeling itself, we target to provide a configurable testing framework for executing tests obtained by the ACTS combinatorial test generation tool, called ERIS.
