Radare2 open source reverse engineering software

Radare2 is an open source tool to disassemble, debug, analyze and manipulate binary files.

Edd at Canthack has posted a detailed example demonstrating use of Radare2 to reverse shellcode.

You may also want to check out the Radare talks and docs pages for more information on this tool. They have a 152 page book covering Radare version 1 available for download which covers many of the concepts also applicable to Radare2.

You can get Radare2 in a tar.gz package with instructions for installs on Linux, Mac OSX and Window on their download page.

  1. I’ve been playing with the predecessor to this a bit. It has very handy support for common embedded architectures; it looks like Radare2 improves on this quite a bit. Will have to give it a go!
