How to Reverse Engineer OS X and iOS Software. The question of why we need to employ reverse engineering is an easy one to answer.

How to Reverse Engineer OS X and iOS Software

When there is an executable, but no access to the source code, yet you still need to understand the inner workings of this particular software, you apply reverse engineering to it. Business situations where reverse engineering will be useful are many and they are very varied: Researching complex software problem Improving compatibility with closed solutions and formats Improving interaction with a particular platform Making maintenance of legacy code easier There are many other cases where you need to reverse engineer software. In this article we will look at how to reverse engineer iOS app, as well as OS X software, and try to give you some practical advice on what you need to know and what tools you need to have. Understanding binary structure. Fingerprint Web Server (OTG-INFO-002) This article is part of the new OWASP Testing Guide v4.
