This workshop provide an introduction into reverse engineering of binary applications. It is designed as a “hands-on” event that provides a general introduction to this topic by reversing several small “crackmes”.

During the workshop, participants will use IDA (Free version) and a debugger to perform static/dynamic analysis of the binaries.

  • x86/x64 Assembler Crash Course
  • Function Calls and Calling Conventions
  • Debugging Symbols and Binary Stripping
  • Common Code Patterns and their Assembly Counterparts
  • Binary patching
  • Pratical Exercises and Crackmes


Participants must bring a Laptop that is capable of running a Linux VM (2 GB RAM, 6 GB HD). VMware and Virtual Box are supported. Having a two-button mouse helps but is not required.
