Beyond Security - beSTORM Version Comparison

beSTORM Product Line

beSTORM is sold by ‘seat’ and by range of protocols, servers, transport layers and files. Previously available only to governments and large corporations, beSTORM has established a long and well documented history of identifying security issues in network equipment and software. Simple to use but powerful enough to have been deployed by the military, beSTORM can replace dozens of hard to use or poorly supported and documented tools and provides a standard, reliable and repeatable security testing process that businesses of any size can incorporate into their software QA process.

BeSTORM is a commercial dynamic application security tester and an intelligent black box fuzzer. It is used in a lab environment to test application security during development or to certify software and networked hardware prior to deployment. It comes with complete technical and developmental support, does not need or use source code and delivers fast results by testing the most common, most likely failure scenarios first and then branching out into a near infinite range of attack variations.

beSTORM Professional Includes:

  • General Purpose Fuzzer
  • Network Protocol Fuzzing
  • DLL / API Fuzzing
  • ActiveX Fuzzing
  • Client-side Network fuzzing
  • File fuzzing
  • 80-20 approach to finding vulnerability: 4 levels of testing on the protocols (known vulnerabilities, simple implementation, full RFC (+extension) implementation, and quirks (Special cases in special products)
  • Development Language independent
  • Does not require source code
  • Linux/Unix and Windows support
  • Integrated tests for known vulnerabilities with full information from CVE             
  • Reproducible tests
  • Easily export test case to Perl scripts and generate binary data of tests
  • Supports binary protocols          
  • Session based protocols
  • Standard encryption support     
  • Intelligent module structure (Supporting length/offset
  • dependencies, element counters, duplications, encoders etc.)
  • High throughput and speed. Supports specifying the optimal connection to a specific server.
  • Easily adaptable to a new testing environment
  • Hands free testing (ability to automatically stop and restart the test according to monitored results)
  • Batch mode support (auto-resume testing upon crash)
  • Custom Module support – build your own proprietary modules for in-house protocols, extensions, file formats and API definitions
  • Tailored attack types (sql injection, cross site scripting, format string, add your own)
  • Add External DLL calls to your modules (special encryption, file/net operation, custom libraries)
  • Custom vulnerability detection support
  • Buffer overflow attacks

  • Format string attacks
  • Null byte attacks
  • Buffer poisoning attacks
  • Off-by-one attacks
  • Malformed encoding attacks
  • Extended functionality to modules through standard win32 api, openssl, Unix
  • Bookmarks – allows to go back in time to previous tests and regenerate scenarios
  • Advanced optimization – allowing faster results by focusing
  • tests on prime subset of tests
  • Supports IPv6, IPv4
  • Auto Learn – Wizard to build new modules (of any type)
  • “Packet capture to beSTORM module” converter (to easily create a beSTORM custom module)
  • Graphical representation of module and attack vectors
  • Automatically control speed testing settings from monitor
  • Change test cases/order depending on result
  • Monitoring tool to examine tested application
  • Ability to implement your own monitor and integrate with beSTORM Client
