Windows Sandbox has been implemented in the operating system as of version 10 Pro. It allows users to install unsafe programs in an isolated environment, without affecting the actual operating system. The Windows feature is usually deactivated in the settings menu.

What is sandboxing? The technical term “sandboxing” is used in software development and cyber security. It describes an isolated environment that allows you to run software in a protected manner. This has the advantage that unfinished or harmful computer programs can neither alter nor damage an operating system.
No software is bug-free. Fuzzing is a targeted approach for finding vulnerabilities in a software program. Using fuzzing tools, random input data is automatically generated and fed to the program for processing in order to see whether intentional or accidental mishandling caused the software to crash. If so, the software poses a security risk to the entire system.
Refactoring is a process in software development where manual or automatic adjustments are made to improve inelegant parts of the source code. The aim of refactoring is to produce a source code that is functionally unaltered, yet structurally easily legible and useable. But what advantages and disadvantages does refactoring involve?
Behaviour-driven development (BDD) is a key component of agile software development. Instead of being based on a certain programming language, the technique utilises a form of text that subsequently allows automated tests. BDD enables non-developers to use complex tools that check the functionality of software, thereby improving the end product.
Programmers use test-driven development (TDD) to manage software development by testing code components. The tests help to provide a clean architecture and reduce bugs. The TDD process is cyclical: After writing a test that fails, functional code is implemented which is then refactored.
The V-Model is one of the most common models for planning and implementing software projects. From the initial concept to programming, to final acceptance – all relevant steps necessary for managing and implementing projects are defined in the V-Model. The V-Model XT is the most current version of the software development process.
