Reverse engineering is the art of understanding machine code and meddling with it. An expert reverse engineer can change a binary (compiled) or non-binary (interpreted) application in any way s/he wants, pretty much like s/he has access to the source code. This course teaches you to be an expert reverse engineer.
On top of that, you will learn methods to increase your performance, you will get to know the tools of the trade and master them, learn how to protect against reverse engineering and more importantly, how to bypass all those protections.
Assembly language, computer programming, familiarity with C programming language.
- Computer Architecture
- x86 Assembly
- Computer Programming
- Windows Programming
Participants will be able to trace, understand and modify binary files to achieve any desired effect. On top of that, they will be able to find possible security flaws in an application. Finally, participants will have basic understanding of forensics and malware analysis.

Students will receive a certificate of “ZDResearch Professional Reverse Engineer (ZPRE)” upon successful completion of the training and passing of the certification exam. This course has a final exam, in which students need to reverse engineer their way through a set of applications and mend them to their will. The score from final exam will be included on the certificate.
