Analyzing how hacks are done, so as to stop them in thefuture Reverse engineering is the process of analyzing hardware orsoftware and understanding it, without having access to the sourcecode or design documents. Hackers are able to reverse engineersystems and exploit what they find with scary results. Now the goodguys can use the same tools to thwart these threats. PracticalReverse Engineering goes under the hood of reverse engineeringfor security analysts, security engineers, and system programmers,so they can learn how to use these same processes to stop hackersin their tracks. The book covers x86, x64, and ARM (the first book to cover allthree); Windows kernel-mode code rootkits and drivers; virtualmachine protection techniques; and much more. Best of all, itoffers a systematic approach to the material, with plenty ofhands-on exercises and real-world examples. Offers a systematic approach to understanding reverseengineering, with hands-on exercises and real-world examples Covers x86, x64, and advanced RISC machine (ARM) architecturesas well as deobfuscation and virtual machine protectiontechniques Provides special coverage of Windows kernel-mode code(rootkits/drivers), a topic not often covered elsewhere, andexplains how to analyze drivers step by step Demystifies topics that have a steep learning curve Includes a bonus chapter on reverse engineering tools Practical Reverse Engineering: Using x86, x64, ARM, WindowsKernel, and Reversing Tools provides crucial, up-to-dateguidance for a broad range of IT professionals.

Master the art of identifying vulnerabilities within the Windows OS and develop the desired solutions for it using Kali Linux. Key Features Identify the vulnerabilities in your system using Kali Linux 2018.02 Discover the art of exploiting Windows kernel drivers Get to know several bypassing techniques to gain control of your Windows environment Book Description Windows has always been the go-to platform for users around the globe to perform administration and ad hoc tasks, in settings that range from small offices to global enterprises, and this massive footprint makes securing Windows a unique challenge. This book will enable you to distinguish yourself to your clients. In this book, you'll learn advanced techniques to attack Windows environments from the indispensable toolkit that is Kali Linux. We'll work through core network hacking concepts and advanced Windows exploitation techniques, such as stack and heap overflows, precision heap spraying, and kernel exploitation, using coding principles that allow you to leverage powerful Python scripts and shellcode. We'll wrap up with post-exploitation strategies that enable you to go deeper and keep your access. Finally, we'll introduce kernel hacking fundamentals and fuzzing testing, so you can discover vulnerabilities and write custom exploits. By the end of this book, you'll be well-versed in identifying vulnerabilities within the Windows OS and developing the desired solutions for them. What you will learn Get to know advanced pen testing techniques with Kali Linux Gain an understanding of Kali Linux tools and methods from behind the scenes See how to use Kali Linux at an advanced level Understand the exploitation of Windows kernel drivers Understand advanced Windows concepts and protections, and how to bypass them using Kali Linux Discover Windows exploitation techniques, such as stack and heap overflows and kernel exploitation, through coding principles Who this book is for This book is for penetration testers, ethical hackers, and individuals breaking into the pentesting role after demonstrating an advanced skill in boot camps. Prior experience with Windows exploitation, Kali Linux, and some Windows debugging tools is necessary

This book is an introduction to both offensive and defensive techniques of cyberdeception. Unlike most books on cyberdeception, this book focuses on methods rather than detection. It treats cyberdeception techniques that are current, novel, and practical, and that go well beyond traditional honeypots. It contains features friendly for classroom use: (1) minimal use of programming details and mathematics, (2) modular chapters that can be covered in many orders, (3) exercises with each chapter, and (4) an extensive reference list.Cyberattacks have grown serious enough that understanding and using deception is essential to safe operation in cyberspace. The deception techniques covered are impersonation, delays, fakes, camouflage, false excuses, and social engineering. Special attention is devoted to cyberdeception in industrial control systems and within operating systems. This material is supported by a detailed discussion of how to plan deceptions and calculate their detectability and effectiveness. Some of the chapters provide further technical details of specific deception techniques and their application. Cyberdeception can be conducted ethically and efficiently when necessary by following a few basic principles. This book is intended for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students, as well as computer professionals learning on their own. It will be especially useful for anyone who helps run important and essential computer systems such as critical-infrastructure and military systems.

Understand malware analysis and its practical implementation Key Features Explore the key concepts of malware analysis and memory forensics using real-world examples Learn the art of detecting, analyzing, and investigating malware threats Understand adversary tactics and techniques Book Description Malware analysis and memory forensics are powerful analysis and investigation techniques used in reverse engineering, digital forensics, and incident response. With adversaries becoming sophisticated and carrying out advanced malware attacks on critical infrastructures, data centers, and private and public organizations, detecting, responding to, and investigating such intrusions is critical to information security professionals. Malware analysis and memory forensics have become must-have skills to fight advanced malware, targeted attacks, and security breaches. This book teaches you the concepts, techniques, and tools to understand the behavior and characteristics of malware through malware analysis. It also teaches you techniques to investigate and hunt malware using memory forensics. This book introduces you to the basics of malware analysis, and then gradually progresses into the more advanced concepts of code analysis and memory forensics. It uses real-world malware samples, infected memory images, and visual diagrams to help you gain a better understanding of the subject and to equip you with the skills required to analyze, investigate, and respond to malware-related incidents. What you will learn Create a safe and isolated lab environment for malware analysis Extract the metadata associated with malware Determine malware's interaction with the system Perform code analysis using IDA Pro and x64dbg Reverse-engineer various malware functionalities Reverse engineer and decode common encoding/encryption algorithms Reverse-engineer malware code injection and hooking techniques Investigate and hunt malware using memory forensics Who this book is for This book is for incident responders, cyber-security investigators, system administrators, malware analyst, forensic practitioners, student, or curious security professionals interested in learning malware analysis and memory forensics. Knowledge of programming languages such as C and Python is helpful but is not mandatory. If you have written few lines of code and have a basic understanding of programming concepts, you’ll be able to get most out of this book.
