Role of Automated GUI Testing in Secure Software Development of Indian Spacecraft Ground Software, GEOSCHEMACS

K. V. Maruthi Prasad | J. Krishna Kishore

Abstract: Inadequate attention to secure software development can make any software susceptible for attacks and runtime malicious errors. Inherent security vulnerability with reference to input invalidation was one of the main software security vulnerabilities and required to be tackled. GUI enabled software needs more testing combinations for finding input data vulnerabilities. GEOSCHEMACS (Geostationary Earth Orbit SpaceCraft HEalth Monitoring, Analysis and Control Software) is Indian Spacecrafts main ground software element and contains GUI presentation & analysis packages. Objective of this paper was to highlight the importance of GUI based applications test automation in achieving secure GEOSCHEMACS. It presents the excerpts of the tool developed for automating the X/Motif applications GUI testing. This paper brings out the results of the experiments carried out with reference to role of GUI test automation in attaining secure software as part of the research being pursued on Secure Software for Indian Spacecraft Ground Software Elements, GEOSCHEMACS.
