In general, many venodors of the said software indicate this in their EULA. That should dictate if an application can be RE-e or not. You have to go through the EUAL to see if its ok or not.

Hi Experts,

I need a small help from you.

Is RE legal for security assessments of products purchased from vendors?

There has been a bit of confusion around RE topic.

I know it is illegal to do RE to steal the idea, however this one, I
need feedback from you folks.

If you can share some authoritative resources that could confirm on
the legality/illegality, it would be great.
