[Capstone] Ultimate Disassembly Framework

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Capstone is a lightweight multi-platform, multi-architecture disassembly framework.

Our target is to make Capstone the ultimate disassembly engine for binary analysis and reversing in the security community.


  • Support hardware architectures: ARM, ARM64 (aka ARMv8), Mips & X86 (more details).
  • Clean/simple/lightweight/intuitive architecture-neutral API.
  • Provide details on disassembled instruction (called “decomposer” by others).
  • Provide some semantics of the disassembled instruction, such as list of implicit registers read & written.
  • Implemented in pure C language, with bindings for Python, Ruby, OCaml, C#, Java and GO available.
  • Native support for Windows & *nix (including MacOSX, Linux, *BSD platforms).
  • Thread-safe by design.
  • Distributed under the open source BSD license.
