How Mayhem compares to other fuzzing tools?

Hi again. I am trying to understand how Mayhem compares to other fuzzing tools, like AFL for example.

Best regards,

We’ve gotten this question before in the past, but I’m reposting it here because it’s a common question!:

Mayhem offers several benefits above that which OSS fuzzers provide:

  • Speed. Offload your fuzzing to the Mayhem platform, and configure it with as many cores as you want, to get fast, multi-threaded fuzzing.
  • Intelligence. Mayhem uses a proprietary implementation of symbolic execution to look deeply into a program and discover newer, deeper paths faster than other fuzzers.
  • Triage. Mayhem keeps track of defects and crashes, stores their backtraces, and associates them with relevant CWEs to faciliate better defect management within an organization.
  • Compatibility. If you are already fuzzing with an open source fuzzing tool such as Honggfuzz, libFuzzer or AFL, we support it! Mayhem can help you drive the testing of these targets asynchronously without modification to the target.
  • Regression testing. Mayhem has built in regression testing that allows you to ensure no regressions are introduced in a particular release within a matter of minutes.

thank you, abrewer. this is helpful.
