Qiling Framework works with different operating system and not limit to any CPU architecture.
For this installation guide, Ubuntu desktop 18.04.3 LTS 64bit is the base example. Grab a copy of official Ubuntu ISO images from Ubuntu CD mirrors. Update and the system and also install pip3, git and cmake
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt install python3-pip git cmake
Once completed, clone a copy of Qiling Framework source from github and run setup to install it.
git clone https://github.com/qilingframework/qiling cd qiling sudo pip3 install -r requirements.txt sudo python3 setup.py install
Important note on Windows DLLs and registry
Due to distribution restriction, Qiling Framework will not bundle Microsoft Windows DLL files and registry. Please copy respective DLLs and registry from Microsoft Windows System, usually found in C:\Windows\system32 and place them in $rootfs/dlls
Refer to DLLX86.txt for Windows 32bit DLLs hashes and file version
Refer to DLLX8664.txt for Windows 64bit DLLs hashes and file version
To export Windows Registry from Windows
ntuser hive : C:\Users\Default\NTUSER.DAT reg save hklm\system SYSTEM reg save hklm\security SECURITY reg save hklm\software SOFTWARE reg save hklm\SAM SAM
Installation notes on macOS >= 10.14
Keystone-engine compilation from py-pip fails (on Mojave at least) because i386 architecture is deprecated for macOS.
CMake Error at /usr/local/Cellar/cmake/3.15.4/share/cmake/Modules/CMakeTestCCompiler.cmake:60 (message): The C compiler "/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/cc" is not able to compile a simple test program. It fails with the following output:
A temporary workaround is to install keystone-engine from source:
- Install keystone-engine Python binding from source:
git clone https://github.com/keystone-engine/keystone cd keystone mkdir build cd build ../make-share.sh cd ../bindings/python sudo make install
Once completed workaround installation, run Qiling Framework setup.
Setting Qiling Framework docker container
If quick and easy way to deploy Qiling Framework is preferred, spin it with docker container.
Building Qiling Framework docker image
Building the Qiling Framework docker by running command below within source directory.
docker build -t qiling:1.0 .
Running Qiling Framework docker with a bind mount
Required DLLs can be bind-mounted to Qiling Framework container. Presuming DLLs are located in /analysis/win.
docker run -dt --name qiling \ -v /analysis/win/x86dlls:/qiling/examples/rootfs/x86_windows/dlls \ -v /analysis/win/x8664dlls:/qiling/examples/rootfs/x8664_windows/dlls \ qiling:1.0
docker exec -it qiling bash
Docker container port can be published with -p switch. This is useful for emulating service such as httpd of a router.
