Reverse Engineering at Glance

Lets talk about Reverse Engineering briefly, because this is also important thing to know when you want to become an expert hacker. 

Reverse Engineering is an activity to discover the material how a something is made, how something is works and what is its purpose. In the other word, discovering the technological principles of something by analizing its structure, function and operation. Usually the thing that want to be reverse engineered is taken apart from its original form then analyze each part one by one throughly.
In the world of hacking, reverse engineering more closely related to reverse software engineering. How the software is made, what is the substance, what is the algorithm, etc. So, to do the reverse engineering a hacker must have a wide knowledge on a software.

And what is the purpose of reverse engineering. By knowing the details of a software or hardware we can maintenance, repair, or destroying the software, even we can create a new software or hardware with the same function and algorithm with the software that we're engineered. Reverse engineering can deduce system decisions from end products with little or no additional knowledge about the procedures involved in the original production.
