Abstract: Software similarity and classification is an emerging topic with
wide applications. It is applicable to the areas of malware detection,
software theft detection, plagiarism detection, and software clone
detection. Extracting program features, processing those features into
suitable representations, and constructing distance metrics to define
similarity and dissimilarity are the key methods to identify software
variants, clones, derivatives, and classes of software. This book reviews
the literature of those core concepts, in addition to relevant literature
in each application and demonstrates that considering these applied
problems as a similarity and classification problem enables techniques to
be shared between areas. We additionally present in-depth case studies
using the software similarity and classification techniques that we develop
in the book.

Keywords: Software similarity, software classification, malware
classification, software theft detection, plagiarism detection, code clone
