Summary and Info
Analyzing how hacks are done, so as to stop them in the futureReverse engineering is the process of analyzing hardware or software and understanding it, without having access to the source code or design documents. Hackers are able to reverse engineer systems and exploit what they find with scary results. Now the good guys can use the same tools to thwart these threats. Practical Reverse Engineering goes under the hood of reverse engineering for security analysts, security engineers, and system programmers, so they can learn how to use these same processes to stop hackers in their tracks.The book covers x86, x64, and ARM (the first book to cover all three) Windows kernel-mode code rootkits and drivers virtual machine protection techniques and much more. Best of all, it offers a systematic approach to the material, with plenty of hands-on exercises and real-world examples.Offers a systematic approach to understanding reverse engineering, with hands-on exercises and real-world examplesCovers x86, x64, and advanced RISC machine (ARM) architectures as well as deobfuscation and virtual machine protection techniquesProvides special coverage of Windows kernel-mode code (rootkits/drivers), a topic not often covered elsewhere, and explains how to analyze drivers step by stepDemystifies topics that have a steep learning curveIncludes a bonus chapter on reverse engineering toolsPractical Reverse Engineering: Using x86, x64, ARM, Windows Kernel, and Reversing Tools provides crucial, up-to-date guidance for a broad range of IT professionals
