REVERSE ENGINEERING

WHEN MOVING BACK MEANS MOVING FORWARD

security and risk management

Reverse engineering helps to secure an already developed system against technology leakage. Surprisingly rarely software developers are aware of and care about securing software against reverse engineering threats.

Limitation of cost and risk assessment before prototyping is another domain where reverse engineering may save time and money – before a bigger amount of resources will be burned for PoC, recruitment, or resources reassignment.

Integration, as well as maintenance, may benefit from reverse engineering too, especially if integrated modules have poor or no support and documentation do not exist, source code is not available, but the system must be stabilized or adapted.


Software systems are more and more complex, depending on multiple libraries, modules, stacks. There are (at least) a few cases where reverse engineering may be handy – secure what is already developed, help in viability studies before prototyping or in maintenance and integration
