Session Abstract - Ghidra2cpg: From graph queries to vulnerabilities in binary code

Uncovering bugs in source code is hard enough as it is, but when all you have is a binary, the importance of tooling becomes undeniable. Disassemblers such as IDA Pro, Ghidra, BinaryNinja or Radare2 provide a strong foundation for an investigation but are designed primarily to assist in what remains a manual investigation. This leaves room for partial automations that make the discovery process less painful.

Fabian and Claudiu were looking to design a search tool for binary code that allows them to uncover instances of programming patterns linked to vulnerabilities - at scale and for multiple major instruction sets. In this talk, they will present ghidra2cpg, an extension for the open-source code mining platform Joern that enables it to process binary code. Together, Joern and ghidra2cpg enable you to quickly uncover the attack surface, search for variants of known vulnerabilities, and gather information interactively using a query language.

In this session they will show how to write queries for the system that describe bugs in source code and introduce corresponding queries for binary code, highlighting what's harder and what is easier to describe when looking at the machine code directly. They will also be looking at modern consumer-grade router firmware and may drop a zero-day or two in the process.
