Approaches to Reverse Engineering Java Applications w/ Nick Starke
July 20, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT
Why would anyone want to reverse engineer your Java applications? In this presentation we will discuss techniques, tools, and goals in reverse engineering Java applications. We'll focus primarily on server-side applications but also delve into client-side applications in the form of Android/Dalvik applications. We'll even discuss modifying Java applications without access to the source code. Finally, we will look at ways to mitigate the danger reverse engineering poses to applications.
