The building blocks for starting a career in malware analysis by building, taking apart, and understanding malware
What you'll learn
Learn how Android applications are developed
Learn how to reverse engineer Android applications and malware
Learn how to extract applications and malware from a running device
Gain access to premium cheat sheets, study guides, and books
Develop your skills with challenges that will assess your understanding through the course
A foundation knowledge of computing - including how to download and install tools, how to use a command line interface, and experience with a programming language such as Python.
An understanding of what Android is and how Android is used by end users.
During this course you'll develop the skills required to reverse engineer Android malware and applications, use both automated and manual tools and approaches, as well as five into multiple case studies reviewing existing malware.
By the end of this course you'll be able to create simple Android applications, reverse engineer your own and the applications of others, identify any potential malicious activity in these applications.
There are several quiz and assignment style challenges through the course designed to support your learning and provide practical learning opportunities.
This course will teach you all you need to know about Android reverse engineering, however, it is advised to come into this course with an already existing knowledge of programming and computational skills (such as using a CLI and computational thinking).
