Program binaries typically contain a significant amount of library functions taken from standard libraries or free open-source software packages. Automatically identifying such library functions not only enhances the quality and efficiency of threat analysis and reverse engineering tasks, but also improves their accuracy by avoiding false correlations between irrelevant code bases. Furthermore, such automation has a strong positive impact in other applications such as clone detection, function fingerprinting, authorship attribution, vulnerability analysis, and malware analysis.
