Source Code Experts

Post Posted: Jul 06, 05 18:49


I'm currently looking for a forensics expert who deals in reverse engineering and source code review. I require someone who is qualified either with a PhD or Masters degree in Computer Science or similar diciplines/experience (Whitehat/Greyhat) and who has courtroom testimony experience. The source code is Ansi C+/C++ and designed for embedded (Non Intel) systems and may employ such stealth techniques as rootkits, api hooks, stack overflow, etc.

Is there such a person out there Question

The source code is Ansi C+/C++ .

I didn't think there was such a language as C+?

I thought there was only C, C++ or C#.

Sorry, an extra + must have slipped by. Smile

Phew! I thought for a minute there was a whole new iteration of the C language out there that I'd missed!

You're really asking for a lot...much of which sounds contradictory.

For example...PhD or MS in CS or similar "experience", to include "Whitehat/Greyhat".

Also, I wasn't aware that embedded, non-Intel systems ran os's that are susceptible to rootkits and API hooks...though I'm sure that anything using C/C++ might possibly be susceptible to stack/buffer overflows.

I'm guessing from your post that you've got a situation or possible incident that you're dealing with...or perhaps you've purchased/acquired a system that you want checked out. Given that your interest is specifically in embedded systems, I'm thinking a manufacturing or processing facility of some kind...I wouldn't think that you'd have access to source code for consumer electronics.

One thing that you haven't mentioned is location...unless that doesn't matter.
