Extract Sense out of Gibberish stuff

Project README


Found a Gibberish string or file in the wild and dont know what is it? Throw it to GibberSense, it might try to make some sense out of it.

Being an extensible framework, we are adding more to the capabilities of GibberSense.

B. Introduction to Gibber Sense

Gibber Sense is a python based tool and extension to LAMMA also known as BCAF (Basic Crypt Analysis Framework) module.
The best use case Gibber Sense is to verify the robustness of encryption libraries if they are free from any backdoor or flaws. But it can also be used to guess type of encryption , hashing schemes, type of encrypted session cookies. If you trying to develop your own secrete encryption scheme, Try and see what GibberSense has to say about it.

Gibber Sense takes 2 types of inputs Strings and Files. Once you feed any gibberish input, it tries to make sense out of it using statistical and basic crypt analysis  

Gibber Sense can identify 100 different string formats and can give you directions for further investigations. 
For Files, Gibber Sense offers -
  * Content type analysis, 
  * Strings extraction, 
  * Frequency Analysis, 
  * Decryption of substitution ciphers, 
  * Attempts decryption with all popular encryption schemes using null keys,
  * Entropy visualization  
  * XORring
  * and pattern analysis. 

C. Dependencies : Gibber Sense uses following python modules :

                1.  magic  - Identifies the File Type

                     pip install python-magic

                2.  PIL - Python Imaging Library 

                    pip install pil

D. Using Gibber Sense :

  1. Gibber Sense is a command line tool

$ python

Purpose  : Gibber Sense accepts any gibberish string or file and
             tries to extract sense out of it

    -h [--help]      : prints this usage help
    -s [--string]    : provide a string parameter to Gibber Sense
    -f [--file]      : proivde a file path parameter to Gibber Sense
    -o [--out]       : save the result of analysis to this file

E. Features :

The Gibber Sense tool is aimed at assist in basic crypt-analysis :

    1.  BASIC      :   
                    Gibber Sense attempts to check if a file conents are text or binary.
                    Looks for English contents in the Text file.
                    based on the contents it suggests next course of action.

    2.  Statistical Analysis  :    
                    Gibber Sense provides stastical analysis of text contents. 
                    be able to extend the functionalities easily by adding custom

    3.  Visualization :   
                    Gibber Sense generated pixel map for the contents of a file to 
                    visually detect the randomness/patterns.

    4.  Basic Cryptanalysis :   
                    Gibber Sense has scripts to perform rotation ciphers, XOR crypt and 
                    decryption with aes-128-xxx-mode with NULL passwords.
