Description:

IDA Pro is a commercial disassembler and debugger that allows reverse engineers to learn how specific programs work. It is the de facto standard for the analysis of hostile code and vulnerability research and the tool that programmers around the world use to pick apart compiled software to see how it works. The IDA Pro Book provides a top-down overview of IDA Pro and its potential uses in the software reverse engineering field. After a thorough introduction to the origins and basic operation of IDA Pro, the book goes into depth on how to use IDA Pro. Author Chris Eagle, a recognized expert in the field, introduces topics in the order in which most users encounter them, so that experienced users can easily jump in at the most appropriate point. Eagle covers a variety of real-world reverse engineering challenges and offers strategies to deal with them, such as disassembly manipulation, graphing, and effective use of cross references. Eagle also shows readers how to extend IDA s capabilities with scripting, plugins, and loader modules.
