EELive Slides

Just got back from the EELive conference in San Jose – great talks, great people, and way better weather than we had back here on the east coast.

For those interested, the slides for my talk, “Finding and Reverse Engineering Backdoors in Consumer Firmware” can be found here. If you get a chance to go next year, I highly recommend it!

Binwalk 2.0 Development

Binwalk version 2.0 is currently under development. This is a fundamental re-design which makes binwalk more modular and easier to extend.

Scripting is easier, plugins are easier – basically everything is easier.

New features, plus Python3 support (and possibly even a Windows package) are also in the works.

The only down side is that the 2.0 release will break backwards compatibility with the 1.x API. Ultimately this is a good thing as the 1.x API has gotten messy, but initially changes such as these are always painful for those relying on the older API, and for that I apologize.

Once 2.0 is stable enough to be merged into the master branch, the wiki and documentation will begin to be updated to reflect the new API.
