    It is actually both.

    Accepted Solution

    It is actually both as unit testing can be done using this tool and regression(functional) testing can also be done.

    A testing framework/system, such as Selenium, is not white or black box testing.  It can, however, be used to create white or black box tests.  The distinction between white and black box testing is how much the user knows of the code behind what's being tested.  As this is the distinction, a framework can't know if the test is white or black box.

    Perhaps it would be good to read a bit about the different types of tests?
