Morgan Whitlow is a multidisciplinary reverse engineer working primarily with embedded and mobile devices. A former lockpicking instructor and nanotechnology researcher, she eventually decided to pursue Master of Science in Applied Computer Science, breaking into tech security and hunting, monitoring, and responding to threats within client systems. She has a particular affinity for hardware and rapid prototyping.
Intended as a first glimpse into Reverse Engineering (RE), this workshop is intended as a high level look at RE both as a skill and as a field and includes both a foundational discussion portion, as well as hands-on demonstration. The course is designed not to try and make attendees an expert on everything RE (an impossible task), but to give enough insight and resources on how and where to get started so that they can continue on after the course. The discussion portion will include what reverse engineering is, use cases and sub-niches, different layers and levels of code abstraction, types of assembly, static and dynamic analysis and the most common tools for each.
