Diablo (Diablo Is A Better Link-time Optimizer) is a retargetable link-time binary rewriting framework. While our focus has been mostly on program compaction and software protection, binary rewriting has a much broader range of applications: speed optimizations, power consumption optimizations, size optimizations, watermarking, instrumentation, etc. A good binary rewriting framework (one like Diablo :-)) is also very useful for program analysis and understanding. For instance, Diablo can print out the control flow graph for all functions in a program, annotated with for example liveness information. Lately Diablo has been used in the ASPIRE project to develop a number of software protection techniques, the code of which can be found in the aspire subdirectory.

Diablo furthermore links against (and this repository contains their code for the ease of building Diablo): * Judy for sparse dynamic arrays (in the judy/ subdirectory) * Jansson for working with JSON data (in the jansson-2.6 subdirectory) which each is copyrighted by their respective authors, and each fall under their own licenses as mentioned in their respective headers and LICENSE file. The easiest way to get Diablo compiled and running, including having a pre-built ARM toolchain, is by using a Docker image we developed for the Aspire FP7 project. It can be found on Github (https://github.com/aspire-fp7/framework). Note that this Docker contains more than just Diablo: it features the entire Aspire protection tool chain, of which Diablo is just a part.
