Code obfuscation consists of many different techniques that can complement each other to create a layered defense. It is most effective for languages that create some form of intermediate level instructions such as Java or the .NET languages like C#, VB.NET, Managed C++, F#, etc. Code Obfuscation is the process of modifying an executable so that it is no longer useful to a hacker but remains fully functional. While the process may modify actual method instructions or metadata, it does not alter the output of the program. Automated code obfuscation makes reverse-engineering a program difficult and economically unfeasible.
