Takeaway Skills

Familiarity with disassembly in the GDB environment of simple C/C++ programs

An understanding of how to debug programs with a cross-sectional view to the contents of registers, stack, and memory

Ability to use GDB as a dump analysis tool

Hands-on experience to reconstruct simple C/C++ programs from the disassembly output

A deeper understanding of the basic assembly language programming skills

Course Overview

The GNU Debugger (GDB) is used for debugging C/C++ programs in LINUX/UNIX environments. It is a good tool to investigate what is happening inside a program, and how the contents inside the memory are changed with the execution of the program. The main focus of the course is the disassembly of the program. You’ll use the Linux ARM64 which is a popular RISC architecture. You’ll use simple operations in C/C++ such as assignment, increment, addition, multiplication. With the help of the GDB, you will probe int...Show More
