Products Overview: Hex-Rays DeCompiler and IDA Pro
IDA is the Interactive DisAssembler: the world’s smartest and most feature-full multi processor disassembler and debugger, which many software security specialists are familiar with and highly regard as the industry de factor standard technology and tools. Written entirely in C++, IDA runs on the three major operating systems: Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
IDA is also the solid foundation on which our second product, the Hex-Rays decompiler, is built. The unique Hex-Rays decompiler delivers on the promise of high level representation of binary executables. It can handle real world code. Hex-Rays Decompiler (a add on/plug in into IDA Pro) is a decompiler that transforms binary applications into a high level C-like pseudo code. Unlike disassemblers, which perform the same task at a lower level, the decompiler output is concise and closer to the way most programmers write applications. This alone can save hours of work because analysts easily map the disassembly output to high-level concepts. The decompiler frees them from this tedious and boring task. Since the decompiler output is similar to high level languages, one does not have to be an expert assembly language programmer to understand it.
