Release CyberFlood v21.5
Key new features  
Advanced Mixed Traffic (AMT) Updates
  • Comprehensive HTTP/3 support, now available for use in AMT, allows users to create highly customized functional and scalable tests. CyberFlood is the only solution in the market to support full HTTP/3 testing capabilities.
  • Continuing the expansion of secure DNS validation use cases, AMT now supports DNS over TLS to verify scale and performance of fully encrypted DNS queries.
  • These new features are included in the AMT license.
Goal Seeking Tests
  • CyberFlood now supports goal seeking to find the peak performance of a system under test for HTTP throughput, connections per second, and open connections. Via simple test configuration options, CyberFlood will automatically determine peak performance and allow users to save attained load spec for further use, greatly reducing test time to determine best performance.
Website Capture
  • Using the external proxy capture tool called FiddlerCap™ (www.telerik.com/fiddler/fiddlercap), users can record high-fidelity interactions of actual website activity and import that SAZ file into a CyberFlood Advanced Mixed Traffic (AMT) test. This is perfect for use cases in which specific application activity is inspected and acted upon, such as content blocking and other security policies.
CyberSecurity Assessment
  • To further test security policies of a system under test, users can now encrypt any TCP scenarios over TLS v1.2 and v1.3. This greatly expands validation coverage of security policies that act on malicious encrypted vulnerabilities.
CyberFlood Virtual Azure Multi-Core Support
  • Spirent continues to evolve and improve our CyberFlood Virtual cloud support with the addition of adjustable multi-core support for use in Azure environments. This allows users to adjust compute resources in an Azure instance to create testbeds with high levels of performance and capacities.  
And more
  • Numerous administration and test configuration improvements have also been added. Please see release notes for v21.5 for more information.
