T he current widespread interest in protecting software from piracy, tampering, and reverse engineering has been brought to bear for several reasons. First, revenue derived from proprietary software sales is vital to many software vendors' survival. Second, more vendors distribute software in forms that attackers can easily manipulate, such as Java bytecode(More)
Software watermarking is a tool used to combat software piracy by embedding identifying information into a program. Most existing proposals for software watermarking have the shortcoming that the mark can be destroyed via fairly straightforward semantics-preserving code transformations. This paper introduces path-based watermarking, a new approach to(More)
This paper presents an implementation of the novel watermarking method proposed by Venkatesan, Vazirani, and Sinha in their recent paper A Graph Theoretic Approach to Software Watermarking. An executable program is marked by the addition of code for which the topology of the control-flow graph encodes a watermark. We discuss issues that were identified(More)
