comment How to handle self-signed SSL certificate error in IE8? (Selenium Webdriver + Java)
I also found the linked blog post confusing. It says "IE7 on Vista does not like the SHA1 certifcate signature alogrithm", but SHA1 is not a signature algorithm. Perhaps what the blogger meant is that IE7 doesn't support DSA? or doesn't support SHA1withDSA signatures? It's hard to tell.

comment Techniques for test selection, give a large suite of test cases
@Justin, thank you for your comment. However, I must admit I'm confused. Those are interesting articles, but can you help me understand the connection to test suite minimization (given an existing test suite, choose a subset of the test cases that maximizes the fault-detection power)? Those articles looked like they were all about test generation, not test suite minimization. Am I missing some connection?

@user246, you can ignore that. I'm now thinking I should not have mentioned that in the question, as it is probably a distraction. I'm most interested in learning about what techniques are used or have been studied in the testing community for test selection, from a large collection of candidate tests. (I mentioned the coverage+set-cover technique only as one technique that I already know about -- but you can safely ignore that.) I look forward to your answer!

Thanks for trying, but no, that wasn't really what I was looking for. (For instance, it refers to exactly the technique that I already mentioned in my question, which I already know about.) I'm not looking for information about fuzz-testing. I am already well-informed about fuzz-testing. Rather, I was most curious about what the testing/QA community has developed any techniques for test selection (in hopes that perhaps some of those might have applications to fuzz-testing as well; I prefer to steal good ideas from existing communities, where possible).
