Secure and Efficient Code Encryption Scheme Based on Indexed Table
Source: Sungkyunkwan University
Software is completely exposed to an attacker after it is distributed because reverse engineering is widely known. To protect software, techniques against reverse engineering are necessary. A code encryption scheme is one of the techniques. A code encryption scheme encrypts the binary executable code. Key management is the most important part of the code encryption scheme. However, previous schemes had problems with key management. In an effort to solve these problems in this paper, the authors survey the previous code encryption schemes and then propose a new code encryption scheme based on an indexed table. Their scheme provides secure and efficient key management for code encryption.
