Autore dell'avviso: Davide Maiorca

30 June 2021
Registrations are open for the seminar Reverse Engineering and Low-Level Program Analysis

---

For those who are interested, from  June 30th to July 10th it is possible to register to attend the seminar "Reverse Engineering and Low-Level Program Analysis".

Registration can be done by filling in this form.

In the following, a brief description of the course is provided.

Lecturer: Prof. Davide Maiorca - davide.maiorca[at]unica[dot]it

Language: English (Entirely Online)

Target students: Ph.D (DRIEI); Master Degree Students in Computer Engineering, CyberSecurity and Artificial Intelligence; Master Degree in Electronic Engineering; Master Degree in Technologies for the Internet.

Duration: 24 hours

Goal of the course: Reverse Engineering (RE) is a discipline that can be employed to analyze the functionality of programs without having the related source code. Thanks to RE, it is possible to understand the bugs of a program, to extract possible hidden functionalities and also to change the whole behavior of the program itself. This course will provide the basic tools to understand and analyze the low-level behavior of a program. In particular, we start by providing an overview of programs written in Assembly X86/64, as well as static and dynamic techniques for their analysis. Then, we will also analyze programs written in MIPS and ARM. The course will employ a game-based approach, where students will consolidate the topics through challenges taken from world of capture-the-flag (CTF).

Requirements: None

Topics:

8 hours – Assembly X86/64 Basics - Static and Dynamic Analysis - Practice Exercises

CONCORSO ''UN'IDEA PER IL FUTURO'' per favorire l’alfabetizzazione previdenziale delle nuove generazioni rispetto all’importanza della pianificazione finanziaria di lungo termine. SCADENZA PROGETTI: 31 DICEMBRE 2022

L’obiettivo di stimolare il processo di alfabetizzazione previdenziale nelle nuove generazioni si affianca alla ricerca di strumenti di comunicazione, anche digitali, che siano un supporto all’apprendimento di comportamenti finanziari e previdenziali “virtuosi”
