Version 2.0 of the CERT Basic Fuzzing Framework (BFF) made its debut on Valentine's Day at the 2011 CERT Vendor Meeting in San Francisco. This new edition has a lot of cool features that we'll be describing in more detail in future posts, but we wanted to let you know that it's available so that you can download and try it.

The CERT Network Situational Awareness (NetSA) team has published an SEI technical report on monitoring web-based threats.

The report draws on related work such as OWASP but comes from a different point of view. While OWASP is focused on developing web applications securely, this report focuses more on situations where you don't have that control, but you need to protect servers and clients from web-based threats. The report may help you answer the following questions:

  • What kinds of network monitoring do you need to do?
  • How do you identify the attacks?
  • How do you prevent them at the network level?

At more than 100 pages, the report is as comprehensive as we could make it and still get it out in a (relatively) timely manner.

Hi, folks. As you can see, we've changed the name of the Vulnerability Analysis Blog to the CERT/CC Blog. With this name change, we're expanding the focus of the blog to include content from other technical teams.

The current RSS and Atom feeds will continue to work, but you may want to update to the corresponding new feed location now (RSS, Atom) in order to avoid any problems in the future.

Past blog entries will continue to be available at the existing URLs.
