On Monday, Google launched a project named "Project Wycheproof", named after a hill, designed to help developers quickly check their cryptographic libraries for a large number of known attacks. Google said that a small mistake, may also lead to catastrophic consequences, and Project Wycheproof provides a combination of security testing to check and prevent open source encryption software library known or common vulnerabilities.
The software in these libraries is responsible for encryption, ensuring that the data stored on the device or transmitted over the Internet is secure.
Google believes that this is an achievable goal, which is the use of Australia 's "smallest (registered) hills" to give the project named reasons. The company wrote on the security blog: "The smaller the mountain, the easier it is to get up."
Project Wycheproof currently contains 80 test cases, and revealed 40 security vulnerabilities. Of course, Google wants external contributors to be involved.
It should be noted that, even if the adoption of the Project Wycheproof test, does not mean that you can stay away from the threat, but said Wycheproof detection of these projects basically sound only.
Google said Project Wycheproof can save developers time.
