Abstract:

Everybody knows that famous quote “to err is human”. Therefore, it is impossible for a human being to create something flawless, especially from a single movement reflected in the effort of software/hardware developers. The only way human beings can truly achieve perfection is to try again and again. The concept of testing (or the attack supported by the need to discover vulnerabilities) is something similar; it leads to the idea of trying to continually test something that has been built/developed, in order to ensure that it works as intended (perfectly). Like any other thing that has been generated in this era of the Internet, software is an extremely complicated creation, with thousands of modular parts. Although these sequences are not mechanical (like into a machine), but transposed into code lines, they are equally sensitive if not even more. So, the chance for one of these to malfunction is extremely high (even one line of code generating “turbulence” is so strong that it could lead to the destruction of the entire software).
