Software Protection techniques aim to defend the integrity and confidentiality of software applications exposed to man-at-the-end (MATE) attacks, performed by a user that shares the execution host and access privileges of the application on a computer system.
The aim of SPRO workshop is to bring together industrial practitioners and researchers both from software analysis, software protection, and the wide range of software engineering community to explore software protection techniques, evaluation methodologies, and practical aspects such as tooling. The objective is to stimulate the community working in this growing area of security and to increase the synergies between the research areas of software protection and their practical deployment.
Questions that the event aims to address include:
- What protection techniques can be designed to protect given assets in software applications?
- Which impact has innovative approaches in reverse engineering, like for example applying machine learning, on the security?
- Which threats need to be considered, and how can we evaluate the robustness of protected applications with respect thereto?
- How can different protection techniques be efficiently combined and what do we gain?
- What can we learn from existing use cases?
- How can protection techniques be efficiently tooled and integrated into a build process?
