Detecting Reverse Engineering with Canaries

Reverse Engineer

Reverse engineering software is commonly done and has various goals such as finding vulnerabilities, learning about security mechanisms and countermeasures, and for general understanding and information extraction. Obviously all software will be reverse engineered at some point but you will never really find out. This talk is about detecting if your software is being reverse engineered. Software is complex and reverse engineering is hard. People will “cheat” and search the web for clues about your software. The idea behind this research is that this “cheating” can be detected. The idea is to embed canaries into binaries and application data to help detecting “reverse engineering” at the time when somebody searches the web for your tokens. In the talk we will discuss different ideas around this general idea and how this can be implemented. Finally we show how this can be used to detect different level of adversaries.
