The bin2llvm Project Build Status

This is an S2E based binary-to-LLVM translator. It converts any binary code to LLVM code. The resulting LLVM module contains functions. Some, control flow details are recovered.

Overview

The idea is to reuse components from S2E to achieve the translation to LLVM. Rougly, qemu translates from binary to TCG and S2E translates from TCG to LLVM. Plugins were added to perform the recursive disassembly of the binary. The raw LLVM code is then fed to a set of external LLVM passes. The purpose of these step is to add more details about the extracted code, concretely, basic blocks are grouped in functions. It is mainly tested on the ARM architecture. bin2llvm is a best effort tool, it will try to translate as much as possible and then link the LLVM code in a final file.

Running the Docker image

$ docker pull docker.io/cojocar/bin2llvm
$ # run one example binary
$ docker run --rm -t docker.io/cojocar/bin2llvm /bin/bash -c "/usr/local/bin2llvm/bin/bin2llvm.py --file /usr/local/bin2llvm/bin/ls-example"
$ # run the tests
$ docker run --rm -t docker.io/cojocar/bin2llvm /bin/bash -c "cd /usr/local/bin2llvm/tests; BIN2LLVM_INSTALL_DIR=/usr/local/bin2llvm make;"

How to build, install & run from the source tree

Dependencies

Consult the Dockerfile for the list of dependencies.

Building (outside Docker)

$ ./scripts/setup.sh # this will copy some dependencies in the third_party directory
$ ./scripts/build.sh ../bin2llvm-build
$ ./scripts/install.sh ../bin2llvm-build ../bin2llvm-install

(optionally) Building the Docker image

$ ./scripts/build_docker.sh

This will result in bin2llvm-dev and in bin2llvm-release-squashed images.

Running

$ cd ../bin2llvm-install && ./bin/bin2llvm.py --file ./bin/ls-example
