Reverse Engineering Kindergarten

Reverse Engineering Kindergarten was designed to experiment and improve your abilities to reverse engineer binary code, which is an essential skill for anyone responsible for software security or performing malware analysis. Sometimes, it even plays a significant role in performing penetration tests and incident response. 

The RE Kindergarten will offer you a glimpse into the Reverse Engineering world. We’ll be playing with some of the tools that researchers use in their day-to-day activities to reverse a piece of code.
Come to the Kindergarten and play with Ghidra, GDB and Python.
