The Binary Analysis Tool (BAT) makes it easier and cheaper to look inside
binary code, find compliance issues, and reduce uncertainty when deploying Free
and Open Source Software. It is a modular framework that assists compliance and
due diligence activities by using the same type of approach applied by to discover issues in consumer electronics. BAT is available
for free under the Apache license so that everyone can use, study, share and
improve it.

BAT can open more than 30 types of compressed files, file systems and
media files, search for Linux kernel and BusyBox issues, identify dynamically
linked libraries and scan arbitrary ELF, Android Dalvik and Java class files
using a database with information extracted from source code to find out what
software is inside.
