Radare2 : UNIX-like Reverse Engineering Framework And Command-Line Toolset

Radare2 is a rewrite from scratch of radare. It provides a set of libraries, tools and plugins to ease reverse engineering tasks.

The radare project started as a simple command-line hexadecimal editor focused on forensics, over time more features were added to support a scriptable command-line low level tool to edit from local hard drives, kernel memory, programs, remote gdb servers and be able to analyze, emulate, debug, modify and disassemble any binary.

  • Install r2 from Git (Clone the repo and run sys/install.sh) or use pip install r2env
  • Read the Official radare2 book
  • COMMUNITY.md engagement
  • CONTRIBUTING.md general rules
  • DEVELOPERS.md to improve r2 for your needs
  • SECURITY.md on vulnerability report instructions
  • USAGE.md for an introductory session
  • INSTALL.md instructions

git clone https://github.com/radareorg/radare2
