NAME

afl-fuzz - code fuzzer for American Fuzzy Lop (afl)

SYNOPSIS

afl-fuzz -i <testcase_dir> -o <findings_dir> [options] -- /path/to/fuzzed/app [params]

DESCRIPTION

This program takes an binary and attempts a variety of fuzzing strategies, paying close attention on how they affect the execution path.
To operate correctly, the fuzzer requires one or more starting files containing the typical input normally expected by the targeted application.
For instrumentated fuzzing, the binary must be compiled using either one of the shipped gcc or clang wrappers. Put -n to fuzz w/o instrumentation in dumb mode.
Please regard that a full fuzzing process takes a lot of time. For exhaustive information on afl, see the documentation in /usr/share/doc/afl-doc.

OPTIONS

Run afl-fuzz without any arguments to see a complete list of options.
