Yesterday’s AMTSO conference brought with it formal announcements of Board positions, new tools for the AMTSO to offer testers (be sure to join the group!) and potential new efforts. There were some Board updates due to terms expiring, and discussion about the group’s directions. The meeting and its agenda are posted at the site’s meeting link.
The group continues to pursue ways to improve testing methods, and finding and collecting malware has always been an issue for improvement. The group is attempting to ensure testing samples that are current, and providing testing matter that exercises products in ways adequate to support reviewer conclusions.
Various papers were discussed and only two of these put up for vote. The group passed the two important papers today that will be posted to the website soon — “Issues in Creating Samples for Testing”, and “Network AV Testing”.
