Software Security, Protection, and Reverse Engineering Workshop (SSPREW)Follow @infosec_events
InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
SSPREW will bring together communities that focus on software security and program protection. Software security is a discipline that lies at the crossroads of security, networks, cryptography, software engineering, operating systems, computer architecture, and compiler design. Reverse engineering and program protection techniques both find their practical use in malware research and analysis as well as legitimate protection schemes for intellectual property and commercial software. This event will focus on how to protect software from reverse engineering, tampering, and piracy as well as techniques of program analysis that support reversing engineering and program understanding.
SSPREW provides a discussion forum for researchers that are exploring theoretical definitions and frameworks, implementing and using practical methods and empirical studies, and those developing new tools or techniques in this unique area of security. The workshop has historically provided an exchange of support and ideas for cooperative relationships among researchers in industry, academia, and government.
For 2019, the workshop will feature peer-reviewed technical presentations on original work, a poster session, invited tutorials, and talk sessions on potentially non-original research.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Obfuscation / Deobfuscation
- Watermarking / Digital fingerprinting
- Reverse engineering tools and techniques
- Program/circuit slicing
- Information hiding and discovery
- Hardware-based protections
- Source code analysis/program understanding
- Forensic analysis and protections
- Virtualization for protection and/or analysis
- Man-at-the-end (MATE) attack technologies
- Homomorphic Encryption
- White-Box Cryptography
- Protection metrics and measurements
