Qiling Framework: Instrument the Impossibilities — by KaiJern (xwings) Lau, Kong ZiQiao & Wu ChenXu

Updated: Jan 2, 2021

SINCON 2020 Conference Deep-Tech Track

Day 1 (2 Jan 2021)


@ Main Stage


Qiling Framework ( is a sandbox emulator framework with a rich set of Python API to enable highly customizable analysis tools built on top. Using emulator technology inside, our engine can run the executable binary in a cross-platform-architecture way, so we can analyze Windows PE files on Linux Arm64, IoT firmware based on Mips on MacOS, and so on.

In this session, we will discuss how we can use Qiling to work with IDA Pro, to combine the greatest static analysis tools with an emulation engine to archive cross-platform and multi-arch analysis. In this lab, we also cover how we can dynamically analyze MBR binary (e.g. Petya) with Qiling Framework.
