What is Software Reverse Engineering?

Reverse Engineering is the process of decompiling a product to expose its internal architecture and learn how it was built. It is widely used to ensure that the system lacks any major security flaws or vulnerabilities.

HTD experts dissect your solution to identify weaknesses and vulnerabilities that could allow hackers to retrieve confidential or secret data or to subvert the system for unauthorized use or malicious attack. Our team employs advanced custom techniques to spot implementation issues, analyze the use of cryptographic primitives, and uncover hidden backdoors intentional or otherwise.

Reverse Engineering Types

  • Black Box Testing

    It involves testing the product or software as a black box and focusing on inputs or outputs. It may involve fuzzing the target to find out critical vulnerabilities which are usually not identified in traditional testing. In addition to finding out known security issues, zero-day security testing approach is also followed to analyze unknown vulnerabilities in the software product.

  • Binary Audit

    In Binary Audit activity of reverse engineering, the following key points are included:

    • Review and test anti-debugging protections
    • Review and test runtime control-flow obfuscation layers
    • Review and test licensing mechanisms
    • Look for and identify for any Malware, Trojan Injection or malicious code
  • Fuzzing

    Fuzz Testing or Fuzzing is a software testing technique used to discover coding errors and security loopholes in software, operating systems or networks by inputting massive amounts of random data, called fuzz, to the system in an attempt to make it crash, generates errors. Various techniques including mutation-based fuzzing and generation-based fuzzing are applied.
