History of Fuzzing[edit]

This is a draft to be relocated to Fuzz testing when it is good enough.

1988 -- Professor Barton Miller at the University of Wisconsin-Madison gives out Fuzz testing as an assignment to his students in his graduate Advanced Operating Systems class.[1]

2001 -- Codenomicon is founded based upon the PROTOS test tool[2] research at the University of Oulu, Finland.[3]

2002 -- Dr. Alan A. Jorgensen at the Florida Institute of Technology provides a detailed description of a fuzzing framework used to find numerous security defects in Adobe Acrobat Reader.[4] This is an example of "In Memory" fuzzing.
