Automatic Protocol Format Reverse Engineering through Context-Aware Monitored Execution

  title={Automatic Protocol Format Reverse Engineering through Context-Aware Monitored Execution},
  author={Zhiqiang Lin and Xuxian Jiang and Dongyan Xu and Xiangyu Zhang},
Protocol reverse engineering has often been a manual process that is considered time-consuming, tedious and error-prone. To address this limitation, a number of solutions have recently been proposed to allow for automatic protocol reverse engineering. Unfortunately, they are either limited in extracting protocol fields due to lack of program semantics in network traces or primitive in only revealing the flat structure of protocol format. In this paper, we present a system called AutoFormat that… CONTINUE READING
