Hey all,

we have released BinNavi v1.5 last week. Normally, I'd write a lot of stuff here about the new features and all, but this will have to wait for a few days -- I am very tied up with some other work.

With the v1.5 release, we have added disassembly exporters that export from both OllyDbg and ImmunityDbg to our database format -- this means that Navi can now use disassemblies generated from those two debuggers, too. The screenshot above is BinNavi running on Ubuntu with a disassembly exported from the Windows VW into which we are debugging.

Anyhow, the real reason for this post is something completely different: We don't advertise this much on our website, but our tools are available in a sort of 'academic program':

If you are currently enrolled as a full-time-student at a university and have an interesting problem you'd like to use our tools for, you can get a license of our tools (Diff/Navi) for a very moderate amount of money. All you have to do is:
  • Contact us ( with your name/address/university etc.
  • Explain what project you'd like to work on with our tools
  • Sign an agreement that you will write a paper about your work (after it's done) that we can put on our website
Oh, and you of course have to do the work then and write the paper :-)
Anyhow, I have to get back to work. Expect more posts from me later this year -- things are very busy for me at the moment.
