static-binaries

This repo contains a bunch of statically-linked binaries of various tools, along with the Dockerfiles / other build scripts that can be used to build them. I generally just create these as I need them - not all tools are available for every platform or architecture. Please file an issue if you want a new tool or a tool on a new platform.

Current List of Tools

Building

Generally, if the directory contains a Dockerfile, you can run the build by doing something like (where FOO is the directory name):

cd FOO
docker build -t static-binaries-FOO .
docker run -v `pwd`/../binaries:/output static-binaries-FOO

Notes:

nmap

  • In order to do script scans, Nmap must know where the various Lua files live. You can do this by setting the NMAPDIR environment variable:
    NMAPDIR=/usr/share/nmap nmap -vvv -A www.target.com

  • The nmap_centos5 binary isn't statically-linked; rather, it's built on CentOS5, so it "should" run on just about every modern version of Linux. Use this if something in the static binary doesn't work properly.

  • On Windows, the nmap binary will probably not work without WinPcap. It also appears to have a random crashing problem with regular TCP scans - I'm not quite sure what's up with that yet.

nping

  • On Windows, nping has the same issues as nmap (see above).

python

  • Getting a static build of Python that works is HARD. Not everything in this particular tool functions properly, and you have to run it with some strange options, but it's usable. In short, you need to run it like so:
    PYTHONPATH=/path/to/python2.7.zip python -sS

  • Note: sqlite isn't currently supported. Adding this is an ongoing TODO of mine.

ht

  • On Linux, the appropriate terminal information must be present. On some versions of Linux (e.g. Debian Jessie), the information may be in a different place - you can use the TERMINFO environment variable to specify the correct location: TERMINFO=/lib/terminfo ./ht

file

  • You need to pass the correct magic database to file - one is provided named magic.mgc. Run file as such: file -m /path/to/magic.mgc myfile.foo.
