bap - Binary Analysis Platform

  •    OCaml

The Carnegie Mellon University Binary Analysis Platform (CMU BAP) is a reverse engineering and program analysis platform that works with binary code and doesn't require the source code. BAP supports multiple architectures: ARM, x86, x86-64, PowerPC, and MIPS. BAP disassembles and lifts binary code into the RISC-like BAP Instruction Language (BIL). Program analysis is performed using the BIL representation and is architecture independent in a sense that it will work equally well for all supported architectures. The platform comes with a set of tools, libraries, and plugins. The documentation and tutorial are also available. The main purpose of BAP is to provide a toolkit for implementing automated program analysis. BAP is written in OCaml and it is the preferred language to write analysis, we have bindings to C, Python and Rust. The Primus Framework also provide a Lisp-like DSL for writing program analysis tools. BAP is developed in CMU, Cylab and is sponsored by various grants from the United States Department of Defense, Siemens AG, and the Korea government, see sponsors for more information.

polytracker - An LLVM-based instrumentation tool for universal taint tracking, dataflow analysis, and tracing

  •    C

PolyTracker is a tool originally created for the Automated Lexical Annotation and Navigation of Parsers, a backronym devised solely for the purpose of referring to it as The ALAN Parsers Project. However, it has evolved into a general purpose tool for efficiently performing data-flow and control-flow analysis of programs. PolyTracker is an LLVM pass that instruments programs to track which bytes of an input file are operated on by which functions. It outputs a database containing the data-flow information, as well as a runtime trace. PolyTracker also provides a Python library for interacting with and analyzing its output, as well as an interactive Python REPL. PolyTracker can be used in conjunction with PolyFile to automatically determine the semantic purpose of the functions in a parser. It also has an experimental feature capable of generating a context free grammar representing the language accepted by a parser.

jsprime - a javascript static security analysis tool

  •    Javascript

Today, more and more developers are switching to JavaScript as their first choice of language. The reason is simple JavaScript has now been started to be accepted as the mainstream programming for applications, be it on the web or on the mobile; be it on client-side, be it on the server side. JavaScript flexibility and its loose typing is friendly to developers to create rich applications at an unbelievable speed. Major advancements in the performance of JavaScript interpreters, in recent days, have almost eliminated the question of scalability and throughput from many organizations. So the point is JavaScript is now a really important and powerful language we have today and it's usage growing everyday. From client-side code in web applications it grew to server-side through Node.JS and it's now supported as proper language to write applications on major mobile operating system platforms like Windows 8 apps and the upcoming Firefox OS apps. But the problem is, many developers practice insecure coding which leads to many client side attacks, out of which DOM XSS is the most infamous. We tried to understand the root cause of this problem and figured out is that there are not enough practically usable tools that can solve real-world problems. Hence as our first attempt towards solving this problem, we want to talk about JSPrime: A JavaScript static analysis tool for the rest of us. It's a very light-weight and very easy to use point-and-click tool! The static analysis tool is based on the very popular Esprima ECMAScript parser by Aria Hidayat.

JAADAS - Joint Advanced Defect assEsment for android applications

  •    Java

This is Joint Advanced Defect Assessment framework for android applications (JAADS, original name JADE renamed to avoid potential trademark issue), written in 2014. JAADAS is a tool written in Java and Scala with the power of Soot to provide both interprocedure and intraprocedure static analysis for android applications. Its features include API misuse analysis, local-denial-of-service (intent crash) analysis, inter-procedure style taint flow analysis (from intent to sensitive API, i.e. getting a parcelable from intent, and use it to start activity). JAADAS can also combines multidex into one and analysis them altogether. Most of JAADAS's detection capabilities can be defined in groovy config file and text file (soot's source and sink file).

gokart - A static analysis tool for securing Go code

  •    Go

GoKart is a static analysis tool for Go that finds vulnerabilities using the SSA (single static assignment) form of Go source code. It is capable of tracing the source of variables and function arguments to determine whether input sources are safe, which reduces the number of false positives compared to other Go security scanners. For instance, a SQL query that is concatenated with a variable might traditionally be flagged as SQL injection; however, GoKart can figure out if the variable is actually a constant or constant equivalent, in which case there is no vulnerability. Static analysis is a powerful technique for finding vulnerabilities in source code. However, the approach has suffered from being noisy - that is, many static analysis tools find quite a few "vulnerabilities" that are not actually real. This has led to developer friction as users get tired of the tools "crying wolf" one time too many.

ApplicationInspector - A source code analyzer built for surfacing features of interest and other characteristics to answer the question 'What's in the code?' quickly using static analysis with a json based rules engine

  •    CSharp

Microsoft Application Inspector is a software source code characterization tool that helps identify coding features of first or third party software components based on well-known library/API calls and is helpful in security and non-security use cases. It uses hundreds of rules and regex patterns to surface interesting characteristics of source code to aid in determining what the software is or what it does from what file operations it uses, encryption, shell operations, cloud API's, frameworks and more and has received industry attention as a new and valuable contribution to OSS on ZDNet, SecurityWeek, CSOOnline,, HelpNetSecurity, Twitter and more and was first featured on Application Inspector is different from traditional static analysis tools in that it doesn't attempt to identify "good" or "bad" patterns; it simply reports what it finds against a set of over 400 rule patterns for feature detection including features that impact security such as the use of cryptography and more. This can be extremely helpful in reducing the time needed to determine what Open Source or other components do by examining the source directly rather than trusting to limited documentation or recommendations.
