Dynamic binary instrumentation

In the previous post we talked about the possibilities to implement programs and carry out all kinds of tasks such as profiling or vulnerability detection. We also introduced Intel Pin, a dynamic binary instrumentation tool (mainly for IA32 and x86_64),

Program instrumentation options

Many of the methods of software testing and dynamic analysis of programs (not necessarily related to security) require inserting some additional instructions in the text of the program to obtain added information, that is, to instrument the program. For example,

The idea behind the symbolic execution

Following in the line of program analysis techniques, this time we are going to talk about a technique that is somewhere in between static techniques and dynamics, symbolic execution. It is a type of analysis that covers different limitations of
