DeepSea Obfuscator 2009

Which conversions are executed is controlled by so called features. The most common feature is "rename". This feature renames all symbols of internal types and members into something that is hard to understand and has no relation what so ever with the original source code. The features that DeepSea Obfuscator 2009 will perform are found in the assemblies themselves by means of obfuscation attributes or in an external configuration file. The . NET framework has specified two attributes (in the System.Reflection namespace) that are used to specify obfuscation features:

o ObfuscationAttribute o ObfuscateAssemblyAttribute

A full description of these attributes and their semantics is given in Obfuscation Reference .

When DeepSea Obfuscator 2009 does not find any obfuscation attributes it will perform a default feature set. This set is configured such that all internal types and members are renamed and typical obfuscation problems (such as resource files, XML serialization etc.) are avoided using Smart Protection rules. 2.2 Your First Obfuscation Now we'll present a step by step instruction for your first obfuscation. We'll use the HelloWorld sample application that is found in the Samples folder. This application has no obfuscation attributes, so the default feature set will be used.

1. First open Windows Explorer in the HelloWorld\bin sample folder. 2. Right click on HelloWorld.exe
