Mutation Analysis for Security
Security has become, now-a-days, a major concern for the organizations as the majority of its applications are exposed to Internet, which increases the threats of security considerably. Thus, the solution is to improve tools and mechanisms to strengthen the protection of applications against attacks and ensure the different security objectives. Among solutions the authors will talking about, in this paper, there is mutation analysis which is a technique of test that evaluates the quality of software tests and their ability to detect errors, It also compares the criteria and test generation strategies. In this paper, they will use the mutation analysis as a mean to qualify the penetration tests, and then, apply this technique in the security mechanisms and exactly on the mechanisms of access control.
