IDAngr

Use angr in the IDA Pro debugger generating a state from the current debug session.

it works only with x86/x86_64 ELF binaries on linux at the moment

IDAngr needs angrdbg installed in the same machine of IDA or in a remote machine.

python2 -m pip install angrdbg

IDAngr can run only with angr 7 at the moment because IDAPython is only Python 2.

GUI

The idangr_gui.py script must be loaded during the debug.

IDAngr adds a panel with a self explanatory interface.

You can set find/avoid addresses and symbolic memory directly from the context menu in the IDA View.

Explore other useful context menus in the panel with the rigth-click on items.

Plugin

You can install indagr as a plugin (see INSTALL.md), to activate it press Ctrl+Alt+I.

Api

IDAngr implements the angrdbg api in the IDA debugger.

Use idangr.init(is_remote=False, host=None, port=None, use_pin=False) to setup the library environment and access to the angrdbg api at the beginning of everything. When is_remote is True the plugin will connect to a remote angrdbg server (start it on the remote machine using python -m angrdbg). You must set use_pin to True if you are connected to Intel Pin with a PinTool compatible with IDAngr (this problably does not work when using remote angrdbg).

idangr.is_initialized() can be used in a script to check if init must be called or not.

StateShot

Return an angr state from the current debug session state.

StateManager

A wrapper around angr to simplify the symbolic values creation and to write the results back in the debugger when angr founds a valid path.

Methods

note: memory values are the same that are returned by state.mem[addr]

A more detailed description of the Api can be found in the angrdbg repo and in my Bachelor thesis.

hook_lib_funcs

Try to hook functions that are recognized by IDA as inserted by the compiler to the corrispondent simprocedure if present.

Example

Python>sm = StateManager()
Python>sm.sim("edi")
Python>sm.sim("esi")
Python>m = sm.simulation_manager()
Python>m.explore(avoid=0x04005D5, find=0x00004005BC)
<SimulationManager with 1 found, 3 avoid>
Python>idc.GetRegValue("edi")
0
Python>idc.GetRegValue("esi")
5
Python>sm.to_dbg(m.found[0])
Python>idc.GetRegValue("edi")
2
Python>idc.GetRegValue("esi")
0

Other Debuggers

If you want to use angr in other debuggers looks at angrdbg

I’va also made an almost equal plugin for GDB: angrgdb
