Capstone is a disassembly framework with the target of becoming the ultimate disasm engine for binary analysis and reversing in the security community.
Created by Nguyen Anh Quynh, then developed and maintained by a small community, Capstone offers some unparalleled features:
Support multiple hardware architectures: ARM, ARM64 (ARMv8), BPF, Ethereum VM, M68K, M680X, Mips, MOS65XX, PPC, RISC-V(rv32G/rv64G), SH, Sparc, SystemZ, TMS320C64X, TriCore, Webassembly, XCore and X86 (16, 32, 64).
Having clean/simple/lightweight/intuitive architecture-neutral API.
Provide details on disassembled instruction (called “decomposer” by others).
Provide semantics of the disassembled instruction, such as list of implicit registers read & written.
Implemented in pure C language, with lightweight bindings for Swift, D, Clojure, F#, Common Lisp, Visual Basic, PHP, PowerShell, Emacs, Haskell, Perl, Python, Ruby, C#, NodeJS, Java, GO, C++, OCaml, Lua, Rust, Delphi, Free Pascal & Vala ready either in main code, or provided externally by the community).
Native support for all popular platforms: Windows, Mac OSX, iOS, Android, Linux, *BSD, Solaris, etc.
Thread-safe by design.
Special support for embedding into firmware or OS kernel.
High performance & suitable for malware analysis (capable of handling various X86 malware tricks).
Distributed under the open source BSD license.
