Welcome to the Bokken's project site, a GUI for the Pyew malware analysis tool and Radare the reverse engineering framework. Bokken is also the RCE tool of the Inguma project.


Bokken is a GUI for the Pyew and Radare projects so it offers almost all the same features that Pyew has and and some of the Radare's ones. It's intended to be a basic disassembler, mainly, to analyze malware and vulnerabilities.

Currently Bokken is neither an hexadecimal editor nor a full featured disassembler YET, so it should not be used for deep code analysis or to try to modify files with it.



  • At the Installation wiki page you can find all the necessary information to set up Bokken for both supported platforms, Linux and Windows.
  • The GUI changes slightly depending on the target, here you have a wiki entry for each of them (with the corresponding screenshots):
    • PE/ELF files can be analyzed in hexadecimal and disassembly formats and further information can be gained with the plugins.
    • Web sites can also be analyzed for malware or security issues.
    • PDF files are supported and some features can aid in its examination for malicious code.
    • Finally all other files can be studied whether they are in binary or plain text format.
  • If you wish to help, go to the development wiki to get started

For any doubt or question about the project visit the Contact page.
