Abstract:

This paper presents the results of a literature review on the topic of Reverse Engineering Cognition under MITREs Internal Research and Development Portfolio. Resource material for this review was gathered by conducting a series of searches for journal articles, conference proceedings and a variety of Internet sources. The paper summarizes what we know today about how reverse engineering of binaries is performed at a cognitive and mechanical level, ties in related areas such as expertise and mental models, and suggests avenues for future research.
