The practical portion will consist of an exercise in reversing a beginner level challenge using a disassembler and, time permitting, with a debugger. Participants can download and install the software ahead of time to follow along during the hands on portion, or simply watch and absorb. The instructor will be using Ghidra and GNU Debugger (GDB) on an Ubuntu 20.04 machine, however attendees are free to use the tools and platform of their choice with the understanding that they may differ in interface and/or capabilities.
- A tolerance for complexity
- Optional: A computer with Ghidra installed.
