From the book description ….

  • Identify known library routines, so you can focus your analysis on other areas of the code
  • Extend IDA to support new processors and filetypes, making disassembly possible for new or obscure architectures
  • Explore popular plug-ins that make writing IDA scripts easier, allow collaborative reverse engineering, and much more
  • Utilize IDA’s built-in debugger to tackle obfuscated code that would defeat a stand-alone disassembler
