“iOS App Reverse Engineering” is a comprehensive guide to the principles and practices of reverse engineering iOS apps. This book is written for individuals who want to learn about the techniques and tools used to reverse engineer iOS apps and how to use them to analyze, debug, and modify iOS apps. It is intended for iOS developers, security researchers, and professionals who want to understand the inner workings of iOS apps and how to identify and fix vulnerabilities in them.
The book begins by introducing the reader to the basics of iOS app reverse engineering, including the history of the field and the different types of tools and techniques used to reverse engineer iOS apps. It covers the different components of an iOS app, such as the executable binary, the Info.plist file, and the resource files, and how they can be used to understand the app’s functionality and identify potential vulnerabilities. The reader will learn about the different types of file formats used in iOS apps, such as Mach-O, plist, and SQLite, and how to read and analyze them.
As the book progresses, it delves deeper into more advanced topics such as dynamic analysis, debugging, and code modification. The reader will learn about how to use dynamic analysis tools, such as Frida and Cycript, to analyze the runtime behavior of an iOS app and how to use debugging tools, such as lldb and gdb, to debug and fix issues in the app. The reader will also learn about how to use code modification tools, such as Hopper and IDA Pro, to modify the app’s binary and add new functionality.
The book also covers the latest trends and technologies in the field of iOS app reverse engineering, such as jailbreaking and iOS sandboxing. The reader will learn about how jailbreaking can
