Automating RE with Python (Carlos G. Prado)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

All tasks involved in binary analysis can be automated. Sometimes it’s a matter of convenience and sometimes there is just not another way to do it…

From static reversing with IDA Pro to debugging with Immunity debugger (or even without a debugger!) every task can be carried out with better performance and more important, less headaches, by using a bit of Python.

In this 4h. workshop (hands on!) you will be learning how to work more efficiently and unleash all the power of several reversing tools you may already know to some extent.

Directed to

  • Advanced beginners in the field of binary reverse engineering who had their first contact with the tools of the trade (IDA Pro, OllyDbg, Immunity Debugger, etc.) and want to go to the next level by automating tasks and writing small scripts or plugins

To take away

  • First immersion in the area of reversing automation.

  • How to use Python to automate some tedious tasks

  • Lots of scripts and plugins to take home and play!

  • Geeky fun!


  • Some knowledge in binary reversing on Windows

  • Basic x86 assembly knowledge would be very helpful

  • First exposure to tools like IDA Pro or a debugger (Olly is cool, Immunity Debugger would be better)

  • Basic knowledge of the Python language

  • A certain „nerdiness“.
