code to create a system that will not need to be reverse engineered again in the future—is

presently unattainable.”

According to [5], there are four software development related reverse engineering

scenarios; the scenarios cover a broad spectrum of activities that include software

maintenance, reuse, re-engineering, evolution, interoperability, and testing. Fig. 2.2

summarizes the software development related reverse engineering scenarios.

Figure 2.2. Development related software reverse engineering scenarios.

The following are tasks one might perform in each of the reversing scenarios [5]:

Achieving Interoperability with Proprietary Software: Develop applications or

device drivers that interoperate (use) proprietary libraries in operating systems or

applications.

Verification that Implementation Matches Design: Verify that code produced

during the forward development process matches the envisioned design by

reversing the code back into an abstract design.
