Abstract
Adversaries reverse engineer weapons systems to replicate a system's advanced capabilities or discover its weaknesses. The software in advanced civilian products is similarly reverse engineered by competitors. Many of these critical systems are real-time systems. The restrictions of real-time have a significant impact on the implementation of anti-tamper technology. This work will build on a tool for transforming source code and machine code to add state-of-the-art protection against reverse engineering. It will incorporate a planning component which determines how to best apply the defensive transformations in order to maximize the degree of protection without violating real-time constraints.
