Dynamic, black box testing of USB with facedancer and beSTORM
beSTORM is the most efficient, enterprise ready and automated dynamic testing tool for testing the security of any application or product that uses USB functionality. Combined with FaceDancer21 it is possible to test any USB device or or host.
The USB protocol requires that anything with USB declare itself as either a “device” or “host”. “Hosts” are computers and other “big” things. “Devices” are iPod, iPads, USB thumb drives, and other “small” accessory-like things. FaceDancer21 is the best hardware to team up with beSTORM to allow it to appear as a USB “device” to the host being tested.
beSTORM specializes in testing the reliability of any hardware or software that uses USB protocol as well as ensuring the function and security of its implementation.
By intelligently testing up to billions of combinations of dynamically generated input, beSTORM ensures the security and reliability of your products prior to deployment. It is also used around the world by government and industry certification centers to ensure that products are secure before purchase and deployment.
Unlike static testing tools, beSTORM black box testing does not require source code and can therefore be used to test extremely complicated products with a large code base. In comparison static source code testing tools must have access to the source code and testing very large code bases can be problematic. beSTORM also reduces the number of false positives by reporting only actual successful attacks.
beSTORM uses an approach known as Smart Fuzzing, which prioritizes the use of attacks that would likely yield the highest probably of product failure. These methods of testing are unique compared to older generation tools that use a fixed number of attack signatures to locate known vulnerabilities in products.
In addition, beSTORM can also be used to test proprietary protocols and specifications (textual or binary) via its Auto Learn feature. This results in a full featured, versatile, and efficient tool that can help your QA team ensure the reliability and security of your software development project
