Many instrumentation techniques are based on modifying code or system environment of the target. It can be suitable for scenarios but it could not work under certain circumstance (integrity checking, non-rooted environment…) In this talk we propose similar techniques by only modifying the executable format. This enables to be architecture independent, injection and hooking does not require privileged environment.
