Evolutionary PDF file fuzzing in a Black-Box harnessing

This is a "mini" research project for the course 4MMSR-Network Security


fuzzing, file, blackbox, memory corruption,


Nowadays, "Smart Fuzzers" designates fuzzers which either have knowledge about the System Under Test, or because they perform "smart mutations". This small research project aims at implementing a fuzzer for PDF readers. The particularity being such a process is feedback driven.

Expected output

  • slides explaining
    • methodology
    • architecture of the fuzzer
    • targeted vulnerabilities
    • individual representation
    • fitness dimensions
    • considered SUT: check filehippo.com
  • fuzzer
  • experiments on at least two different PDF readers (e.g. foxitreader and acrobat reader).

Research Questions

  • weight of fitness dimensions
  • fault efficiency detection





Get Started!

  • create an archive on the ensimag server, so that only your team members and I have access to it.
  • Créer_une_archive_partagée_avec_Git
  • obviously, do not forget to send me the path afterwards
