What is Fuzzing?

"Fuzzing" or "fuzz testing" is currently the most effective testing approach to automatically detect security and stability issues in software. It involves providing invalid, unexpected, or random data as inputs to a computer program. 

Modern fuzzing engines (such as AFL++, or Jazzer) do not just use random inputs, but smart algorithms tailoring the input to increase the amount of code which is tested/covered by the fuzzer.
