Abstract

We present experimental results from intentionally obfuscating binary instruction data on the x86 64-bit environment. The work is a part of a larger research project to implement an obfuscating compiler, where the intent is to make reverse engineering of compiled binaries more difficult by hiding instructions from the reversing tools. We empirically determine good selections of “junk” bytes in order to maximize the number of instructions hidden or misrepresented by reverse engineering tools.
