For evaluating the security, penetration tests (also known as pen test) are made in order to identify vulnerabilities of software or systems. The goal is to avoid, that unauthorized parties gain access to features and data.
Analysis of Penetration Tests with Testwell CTC++ Code Coverage Analyzer
The evaluation of the penetration tests can be significantly simplified if the code coverage is measured during the penetration test with Testwell CTC++
. The goal is the opposite of the classic 100% code coverage: during the penetration test, as few parts of the software as possible should be executed.
