What you'll learn

Training overview

Infosec’s hands-on Reverse Engineering Boot Camp teaches you the necessary analytical skills to discover the true nature of any Windows binary. You’ll learn how to recognize the high-level language constructs (such as branching statements, looping functions and network socket code) critical to performing a thorough and professional reverse engineering analysis of a binary. After learning these important introductory skills, you will advance to the analysis of hostile code and malware, vulnerabilities in binaries, binary obfuscation schemes and more.

You will gain hands-on experience with popular commercial and open-source decompilers and debuggers, as well as learn how to use various hex editors, binary analysis programs and code coverage analyzers. The boot camp also prepares you to pass the Certified Reverse Engineering Analyst (CREA) exam.
