Practical Binary Analysis (No Starch Press)
Wednesday, 02 January 2019

This hands-on guide teaches you how to tackle the topics of binary analysis and instrumentation with the aim of becoming proficient in an area typically only mastered by a small group of expert hackers. Dennis Andriesse presents advanced binary analysis topics, such as binary instrumentation, dynamic taint analysis, and symbolic execution, in an accessible way. It will take you from basic concepts to state-of-the-art methods as you dig into topics like code injection, disassembly, dynamic taint analysis, and binary instrumentation.
