The Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) was delighted to be a part of Q-leap's third Luxembourg Software Testing Event on 5 October 2017 at Forum Da Vinci. This event brought together software testers from across academia and industry in order to exchange, share and debate the latest trends in the field. 

Prof. Lionel C. Briand and Dr. Fabrizio Pastore, both of SnT's Software Verification and Validation Lab (SVV), spoke on the processes by which companies assess the security of their software systems. Current methods rely mostly on experts identifying the security requirements that need to be tested and then choosing the methods and technologies with which to do so. In order to enhance this process SVV has developed a methodology and toolchain for the identification and testing of these security requirements. The method supports the automated generation of security test cases, allowing companies to gain a better control over security testing activities and helping security experts to derive effective testing campaigns.
