Architecture Technology Corp. (ATC) proposes a reverse-engineering toolset named AfterShock. This toolset will use dynamic analysis and will build one work done for ATC's static reverse-engineering tool, Earthquake. AfterShock will use Valgrind, an open-source dynamic code modifying tool, to gather data from execution traces of the target program. AfterShock will then analyze and convert those traces into ObRTL, an intermediate language developed for Earthquake. Lastly, AfterShock will have a GUI that lets users analyze the execution traces and identify program features, like variables, loops, branches, and functions. ATC expects AfterShock to be better than the state-of-the-art toolset: a debugger and disassembler. AfterShock will gather data faster than in a debugger, ease analysis by using the clean ObRTL language rather than idiosyncratic assembly language, and be useful in more situations than a disassembler.
