Course Description

An in-depth understanding of software reverse engineering concepts and hands-on training with reverse engineering tools, including disassemblers, decompilers, and code analyzers. Students will become familiar with both low-level software and the x86 instruction set through binary reversing sessions. This course also provides insights into many subjects such as system security, source code analysis, software design, and program understanding that will be beneficial in a variety of fields.

Learning Objectives

Reverse engineer binaries compiled for Windows and *nix and the Intel architecture. Read and interpret x86 assembly language to understand program logic and data structure/organization. Effectively use debuggers and binary utilities to assist the reversing process. Reverse engineer binaries using industry standard disassemblers and decompilers such as IDA Pro and Ghidra. Understand and demonstrate memory corruption exploits such as stack and heap overflows and format
string attacks.
