Stripped binary is a binary file without these debugging symbols and thus lesser in size and gives potentially better performance than a non-stripped binary. A stripped binary makes it hard to disassemble or reverse engineer which also in turn makes it difficult to find problems or bugs in the program.
What you will learn
This tutorial introduces the concept of debugging a stripped binary file (executable) using the GNU Debugger. After completing it you should learn: * How to use GDB to analyze a stripped binary file * Basic reverse engineering techniques on stripped binary files.
It is recommended, but not necessary to be familiar with the following concepts: * Assembly language * C programming language * Basic linux usage * GDB
