Rev Eng and Software Security
College of Arts + Science
The objective of this course is to familiarize students with the practice of performing reverse engineering on suspicious files and firmware by utilizing static and dynamic techniques and procedures. The student will gain an understanding of how malware behavior can be used to train machine learning classifiers to detect malicious software. Analytical information such as environment changes (file, system, network, and process), communication with the rest of the network and the malware’s impact on system will be closely observed and analyzed for actionable information.
