Collocated with ACSAC 2018

Workshop Overview

SSPREW brings together two communities of interest from previous workshops that focus on program protection (PPREW) and software security (SSP). Software security is a discipline that lies at the crossroads of security, cryptography, networks, software engineering, computer architecture, operating systems, and compiler design. Program protection and reverse engineering techniques both find their practical use in malware research and analysis as well as legitimate protection schemes for intellectual property and commercial software. The workshop will focus on how to protect software from tampering, reverse engineering, and piracy as well as techniques of program analysis that support reversing engineering and program understanding.

SSPREW will provide a discussion forum for researchers that are exploring theoretical definitions and frameworks, implementing and using practical methods and empirical studies, and those developing new tools or techniques in this unique area of security. The workshop communities have historically provided exchange of ideas and support for cooperative relationships among researchers in industry, academia, and government.
