Software Engineering Institute


The focus of this research is developing capabilities within CMU SEI’s Pharos binary code analysis framework to address the technical problems underlying important cyber challenges. The research will improve reverse engineers’ ability to comprehend complex malware by enabling them to trigger the execution of a specific portion of a program in a debugger or sandbox.
