"Fuzz testing is one of the software testing methods besides functional
testing, performance testing, etc. It used to find exceptions such as crashes,
failing built-in code assertions or potential memory leaks by providing
invalid, unexpected, or random data input.

In this topic we will talk about how fuzz testing make Linux kernel more stable.
First we will talk about the principle of fuzz testing. Then the types of
fuzzers, what's the difference, what's the good and bad points. How the kernel
fuzz testing development. And the last, how the new generation fuzz tool,
syz-kaller, works.

The topic talks only the basic theory and no experience needed. With this
topic attendees will know how fuzz testing works and find bugs. How to add new
feature test cases when develop new kernel features."
