Video Game Protection: from Obfuscation with Mixed-Boolean Arithmetic to Machine-Learning of Bot Behavior

Denuvo GmbH is a software company based in Salzburg helping major game publishers protect their video game releases. In this talk we will look at two particular technologies relevant for (i) code protection and (ii) guarding the players' experience of online games.

Mixed-Boolean Arithmetic expressions combine arithmetic and bit-wise operations. They can be used to rewrite code in an arbitrarily complex way that is believed to be hard to simplify. We present some deobfuscation results and explain why MBAs need to be chosen carefully.

Cheating and Bots are prevalent in many online games. We explore methods to distinguish human players from bots using heuristics based on their behavior, as well as supervised and unsupervised machine learning techniques.
