Event Recap 2019

After months of preparation, and a full day packed with excitement and hard work, we can state that the first big event on fuzzing organized by Code Intelligence in Bonn on June 27 was a success. We are also extremely happy about all the positive feedback provided by the guests and participants.

The event presented current projects and latest developments in cybersecurity with a focus on fuzzining. There was also plenty of room for networking and one-on-one discussions.

The event took place in the Digital Hub co-working area and in company rooms of Code Intelligence located in the beautiful area of Bonner Bogen close to the Rhine river. Lunch from an Indian food truck and a barbecue with live music in the evening added to the casual atmosphere of the event.

The event combined four presentations and three breakout sessions. It started off with a presentation by Marc Wallert about overcoming crises in digital environment. It was followed by the presentation on fuzzing research in the academic world by Prof. Thorsten Holz. In the afternoon, the event continued with some insights into human-centric software design by Prof. Matthew Smith, Sebastian Pöplau finished the event with a talk on symbolic execution and how it can be combined with fuzzing to improve software security testing.

Three breakout sessions taking place before and after lunch covered a range of topics on fuzzing - from explaining fuzzing technology with examples (Dr. Khaled Yakdan) to applying fuzzing to embedded devices (Sirko Höer) and easy integration of fuzzing into software development process (Sergei Dechand).
