Abstract (click to view)

This will be a simple and short introduction into Android reverse engineering, taking the student from zero to hero. No previous reversing knowledge is required and all of the tools will be provided in the form of a VM packed with goodies. The course will cover the basics of Android, APK structure, DEX file internals and how this can be exploited in order to decompile and deobfuscate malware. In addition, hands on exercises will be provided with fresh malware samples where the knowledge can be put to good use in extracting C2s and other interesting information.
The course aims to introduce people into the world of Android reversing. It will be a mostly hands on experience with just enough theory to provide the student a solid base upon to build their reversing skills. The course covers spotting suspicious samples, C2 deobfuscation, secondary payload extraction through both static and dynamic analysis.
