DIAMONDS considers the particular issue of security testing of networked systems to validate the dependability of networked systems in face of malice, attack, error or mischance. Testing is still the main method to reliably check the functionality, robustness, performance, scalability, reliability and resilience of systems as it is the only method to derive objectively characteristics of a system in its target environment. A number of approaches have long been around to target specific attacks on systems (e.g. vulnerability scanners), but when we refer here to the more systematic testing of systems with respect to specified policies or security properties, testing a system for its security is a relatively new concern that has started to be addressed in the last few years. This document reviews the state-of-the-arts methods used in security testing.
