Basic workflow and interface




The basic workflow of using IDA Pro 7.0 is as follows:


  • Select a binary file to analyze or a process to debug from the File menu or the toolbar.



  • Select the processor module and the file loader that match the binary file or the process from the dialog box that appears.



  • Wait for IDA Pro to perform the initial analysis of the binary code and display the disassembly in the main window.



  • Navigate, explore, annotate, and modify the disassembly using the various views, windows, menus, toolbars, hotkeys, and commands that IDA Pro provides.



  • Use the debugger to run, pause, resume, stop, or step through the binary code or the process, and inspect or modify its state.



  • Use the decompiler to view the reconstructed source code of the binary code or the process, and edit or patch it if needed.



  • Use the scripting or plugin capabilities to extend the functionality of IDA Pro or automate tasks.



  • Save your analysis results in an IDB file or export them in various formats, such as HTML, XML, IDC, etc.



The interface of IDA Pro 7.0 consists of several elements that help you interact with the binary code or the process, such as:


  • The main window, which shows the disassembly of the binary code or the process in various modes, such as text, graph, pseudocode, hex dump, etc.



  • The views, which are tabs that allow you to switch between different modes of the main window.



  • The windows, which are panels that show additional information or tools related to the binary code or the process, such as functions, strings, imports, exports, segments, registers, memory, breakpoints, etc.



  • The menus, which are drop-down lists that provide access to various commands and options related to the binary code or the process.



  • The toolbars, which are rows of buttons that provide shortcuts to frequently used commands and options related to the binary code or the process.

  • Using type libraries (TILs) to apply predefined types and structures to the binary code or the process, or create your own types and structures using the type editor.



  • Using comment databases (CMTs) to import or export comments and annotations from or to other IDA Pro users or tools.



  • Using structure offsets (SOFFs) to access fields of structures using dot notation in the disassembly or the decompiler.



  • Using stack variables (STKVs) to name and type local variables on the stack in the disassembly or the decompiler.



  • Using function prototypes (FPRs) to define and apply calling conventions and parameter types to functions in the disassembly or the decompiler.



  • Using function summaries (FSMs) to view and edit information about functions in a compact and convenient way.



  • Using microcode (MC) to view and edit a low-level intermediate representation of the binary code or the process that is used by the decompiler.



  • Using patches (PTCs) to apply changes to the binary code or the process without modifying the original file or memory.



  • Using signatures (SIGs) to identify and rename known functions or libraries in the binary code or the process using precomputed databases.



  • Using FLIRT (Fast Library Identification and Recognition Technology) to recognize standard library functions in the binary code or the process using pattern matching algorithms.
