In the real world, how do most people create a test case? In most instances, they open the tester GUI, configure the test, debug the test, run the test, print the report, and are done. The question when we drill deeper is “Is this the most effective way for us to be performing our testing?” Let’s drill down into the problems this technique creates for organizations. Generally, many test engineers are given a test set which may include a full DUT or specific test ports on a shared DUT. The configuration of specific attributes of these ports such as routing/IP information, firewall rules, ALCs typically do not change unless they are specifically being tested. In the classic model, the user keeps rebuilding attributes of the test over and over again potentially building the same test hundreds of times.

When we’re testing for provisioning scale for a device under test candidate, what is the meaningful metric to measure? Traditional metrics such as bandwidth, connections per second, or open connections are narrow focused metrics that measure specific engineering attributes of the device. For example, open connections and connections per second will give you information about table scaling and bandwidth will give you information about forwarding efficiency but neither of these metrics will put it all together and directly measure how users perceive quality over time.

Recently, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) launched “Hack the Pentagon”, its pilot bug bounty program. This first-ever federal government-initiated program is designed to identify and resolve security vulnerabilities. However progressive it is, it’s still not a replacement for traditional security testing, and secure coding practices.
