Music: The Lazy Eyes - Fuzz Jam (2022)

This week we take a look at the growing importance of fuzzing[1] in platform engineering.

Getting Informed

Feedback from last week (thank you!) was positive on the format change to โ€œWhat is Jay reading ๐Ÿ“–โ€. This week, Iโ€™ll once again expand reading ๐Ÿ“– and watching ๐Ÿ“บ. (no listening ๐ŸŽง this week)

๐Ÿ“– - These blog posts are great bite sized entry points for why fuzzing matters.

๐Ÿ“บ - After the blog posts, these longer form videos are outstanding for getting into the details of fuzzing as well as the different perspectives and implications of an ever more cloud connected world forming the Internet of Stuff.

I want it all to stay the same ๐ŸŽถ

So, does fuzzing come with an existing scanning toolchain? Does it matter that fuzzing be part of what code is being shipped?

Well, yes, yes it does. Are you getting the feeling weโ€™ve talked about this before?

Youโ€™re not wrong.


But, thereโ€™s is also the notion of fuzzing the toolchain *itself*.

Donโ€™t be afraid to say my name ๐ŸŽถ

Just consider the CNCF references to fuzzing and fuzz testing from 2018 to present:

With my last 20 of 500 words, Iโ€™ll simply suggest that learning about Artificial Intelligence Fuzzing (AIF) is worthwhile.

So, what will be the next big thing for fuzzing in platform platform engineering?

Until thenโ€ฆ Place your bets!
