Fun with Symboliks presented at Defcon 2015

by Atlas ,

Summary : Asking the hard questions... and getting answer! Oh binary, where art thine vulns?
Symbolic analysis has been a "thing" for 20 years, and yet it's still left largely to the obscure and the academic researchers (and NASA). several years ago, Invisigoth incorporated the Symboliks subsystem into the Vivisect binary analysis framework. due to that inclusion, the very nature of binary analysis has been broken down, rethought, and arisen out of the ashes. this talk will give an introduction into Symboliks, Graph Theory, and the path forward for reverse engineering and vulnerability research, all from an interactive Python session or scripts.
