This article introduces combinatorial testing-based approaches for security testing and presents case studies and experiences. The success of the presented research program motivates further intensive research on the field of combinatorial security testing. In particular, security testing for the Internet of Things (IoT) is an area where these approaches may prove particularly useful. IoT systems send and receive data from a large (often continually changing) set of interacting devices and the number of potential communicating pairs increases with the square of the number of devices. Combinatorial methods are ideally suited for the IoT environment, where testing can involve a very large number of nodes and combinations.
