What is DAST?
What is SAST?
DAST stands for Dynamic Application Security Testing, and it’s a blackbox suite of tools that really look at web applications on the front end. DAST looks at a running application looking for potential security vulnerabilities, architectural weaknesses, SQL injection, and cross-site scripting, among other security risks in the OWASP Top Ten. How is SAST different […]
Top 10 Coveros Blogs of 2019
SAST stands for Static Application Security Testing. SAST look through application source code for security defects, different issues written into the source code, and how the application is actually programmed to identify vulnerabilities that then have the potential being exploited. How is SAST different from DAST? SAST typically takes less time than running DAST, and […]
5 Tips to Turn Recorded JMeter Scripts into Reusable Tests
We like to take a look at our top blogs each year and see what everyone is interested in so we can create interesting content for the new year.
Selenified and LambdaTest
Load and performance issues can be difficult to resolve when found late in the software development lifecycle, yet teams still often wait until the last minute to performance test their applications. This can be costly, especially if the problem ends up being an issue with the overall architecture of the application. Load and performance testing […]
The Agile Manifesto Principles: Collaborate Daily
I recently had the pleasure of being introduced to the team over at LambdaTest. LambdaTest runs a cross-browser cloud infrastructure that allows the execution of Appium and Selenium tests remotely. I was intrigued to learn more about their infrastructure and tooling, as it seemed like something that should fit in nicely with Selenified. I signed […]
Selenified 3.2.1 Release
If business people and developers—and testers—aren’t regularly communicating, development teams will never be able to deliver the value the business is looking for.
Functional Testing != Layout Testing
Another quarter, another Selenified release in the books. Nothing huge in this release, just some small feature updates and enhancements. Additional Reporting Features The custom Selenified reports have been updated to include some additional information. Previously, when parameterized tests were executed, the individual results weren’t easily identified in the report. This has been fixed, with […]
On Wednesdays We Practice Correct Agile Testing
Through my work as a test automation consultant, I hear from a lot of people, teams, and organizations about how test automation is not working. Across the industry, this is true, as stats point to about only 20% of tests being automated. This is pretty interesting (and bleak), seeing as test automation has been around […]
Test Like a Scientist
Although in recent years there has been an exponential increase in companies and development teams applying Agile methodologies, testing still seems to be lagging behind with most companies thinking they are doing Agile testing but in fact still using the waterfall method. Some of the biggest issues in Agile Testing were brought to light in […]
I was reading the other day, and happened to come to a section of my book discussing the scientific method. While I grew up with a heavy background of math and science, and am familiar with the scientific method, it had been awhile since I’d thought about it at all. It was interesting to hear […]
