Ghidraaas - Ghidra as a Service

Ghidraaas is a simple web server that exposes Ghidra analysis through REST APIs. The project includes three Ghidra plugins to analyze a sample, get the list of functions and to decompile a function.

Ghidraaas is also the backend of GhIDA, the IDA plugin that integrates the Ghidra decompiler in IDA Pro.

How does it work?

Ghidraaas uses Ghidra Headless Analyzer to analyze the submitted sample. Then, the Ghidra project (the

file and the
folder) is kept on the server until the
API is called. Three Ghidra Python plugins are called by the Headless Analyzer on the sample's project to extract the list of functions and to decompile the requested function.


Ghidraaas implements generic APIs to analyze a sample, get the list of functions and the decompiled code of a function, but it also includes some specific APIs to interact with the GhIDA plugin.

Ghidraaas generic APIs:

  • api/analyze_sample/
    Submit a sample for the analysis
  • api/get_functions_list/
    Request the list of functions
  • api/get_functions_list_detailed/
    Request the list of functions with additional details
  • api/get_decompiled_function//
    Request to decompile a function
  • api/analysis_terminated/
    Remove the
    file and
    project folder related to the sample.

GhIDA specific APIs:

  • api/ida_plugin_checkin/
    Sample check-in
  • api/ida_plugin_get_decompiled_function/
    Decompile function
  • api/ida_plugin_checkout/
    Sample check-out.

An example on how to use the APIs can be found in
