"What is binary encryption and why encrypt at all? For the answer to
this question the reader is referred to the Phrack#58 [1] and article
therein titled "Runtime binary encryption". This article describes a
method to control the target program that doesn't does not rely on
any assistance from the OS kernel or processor hardware. The method
is implemented in x86-32 GNU AS (AT&T syntax). Once the controlling
method is devised, it is relatively trivial to include on-the-fly
code decryption."
