I think the term is "blackbox" analysis, I you've got no source. If
you're focusing on source and binary analysis, that's Graybox analysis.
The common way could be to use an (Interactive) Disassembler, dump the
binary, and analyze it. The rest is dependent of the OS. There's
IDA(Pro), ollbydbg (a debugger to locate the functions which are
called). SoftICE, there's otool(e) for MacOS, maybe you want boomerang,
there the gdb. There're some comercial disassembler, too. For whitebox
analysis there's lot's of stuff.
To my mind the important feature is speed ;), performance and an
organized view of the dump. I like IDAPro and DDD.
