What is Grey Box Testing? How can it help you?

thCAHLW1O2.jpgI have always dreamed of being a contestant on “Jeopardy”. I can imagine myself being $10,000 ahead of the next competitor and having Alex Trebek ask, “For $1000, can Software Testing group survive and improve on the SDLC process in 2013?” My answer? Alex, “What is grey box testing”


Everyone in the testing industry has learned, heard, or used white box or black box methods of testing. But how many been trained, heard or used the step-brother method of testing—grey box testing or what is sometime called translucent testing?

What types of software testing matter to you?

  1. Are you or your group looking to getting more bang for your testing software dollars and what types of software testing will return higher dividends?
  2. Can you cut software testing cost and lower the companies' exposure to risk at the same time?   
  3. Does communication and integration matter when time and cost are out of control?
  4. What is the highest priority in software testing quality, security, or cost?

This Articale will start taking look at what matter to software-development  testing.
