WHAT: BLR assembler class: Intro to Radare2/Iaito
WHEN: Sunday, July 9th (2rd Sundays), 1:00pm
WHO: ‘Blibbet’
WHERE: Black Lodge Research; 17725 NE 65th St, Unit A-155; Evans Business Park, Building A; Redmond, WA 98052; https://blacklodgeresearch.org/

No new Intel assembly this month, instead we’ll focus on a tool. This class will focus on getting started with Radare2 and the new Iaito GUI. We’ll look at how to use Radare to examine x86 assembly-based ELF32 images. This won’t be a full Radare2 feature tutorial — I’m just learning it myself — rather a basic use of radare2/iaito to examine assembly language. Unlike some tools, Radare is very powerful with a steep initial ramp-up (like Vim or Blender), you’ll need to spend a few days to get used to using this tool. We’ll cover a small set of it’s core features, focusing on unassembly and viewing the stack. 2/3 of the time on Radare, 1/3 on Iaito GUI.

To prepare, get Radare2 and Iaito installed on your system. Radare has lots of binary packages, Iaito is Qt 5.x C++ and has nearly no packaging so you’ll have to build it from source, unless you’re using BlackArch-Live Linux distro. I’ll assume you have the software installed before class. Get your previous homework on that system, so you can examine those binaries with Radare.




Return of the DC206 Mailing List

For the last  year or so, the DC206 Mailing list has been hard to subscribe to, the list’s host went down and the list was migrated to a temporary server. Recently, Noid has ‘rebooted’ the list, so normal methods to subscribe to the list should now work.

Subscribe by emailing list-request@lists.dc206.org with the subject “subscribe”, or use the web form at:


Besides the Black Lodge Research classroom whiteboard, the DC206 Mailing List is the main place where announcements for the DC206 Monthly Meeting, Black Lodge Research’s Open Hack Night, Black Lodge Research’s assembly language class) occur. The archives of the list are not open to the public, either.
