Some people say “Reverse Engineering is an art”. Well, this might be true if you consider stuff like mathematics as art. It is more an application of standard methods that evolve constantly. Actually, everybody can learn these methods and start to RE executables. With the RE-Google plugin for IDA Pro, even your granny can start reversing :)
Reverse engineering is like solving a jigsaw puzzle. In order to see the whole picture you need to find the corner pieces, then the frame, and then work your way forward from there.
We are very excited to announce the Honeynet Project has applied for the Google Summer of Code for 2009. We find that students are often the best source of new ideas and developing cutting edge new technologies. Having been dedicated to opensource security for over ten years we are strong believers and supports of giving back to the community. We look forward to the opportunity to work with, mentor and help develop some of the most creative minds on the Internet today.
