Most of the industry writes tests which are designed to prove that the design works, or if desigend to be stress tests, designed to be reproducable. In my opinion both of these are misguided, and in my talk I will describe a different approach, which is designed to break the product and uses random scenarios, but has been, I believe, key to CSR ’s sucess. So far as I know we are unique in doing it in the manner I shall desicribe.
