Code Obfuscation


So, I have a penchant for Easter Eggs… this dates back to me being part of the found community of the Easter Egg Archive.

However, I also do a lot of open source programming.

What I want to know is, what do you think is the best way to SYSTEMATICALLY and METHODICALLY obfuscate code.

Examples in PHP/Python/C/C++ preferred, but in other languages is fine, if the methodology is explained properly.

Best Solution

  1. Compile the code with full optimization. Completely strip the binary.
  2. Use a decompiler on the code.

I can guarantee the result will be so utterly unreadable that you won't even be able to read it ;)
