S2E: The Selective Symbolic Execution Platform

S2E is a platform for writing tools that analyze the properties and behavior of software systems. S2E comes as a modular library that gives virtual machines symbolic execution and program analysis capabilities. S2E runs unmodified x86, x86-64, or ARM software stacks, including programs, libraries, the kernel, and drivers. Symbolic execution then automatically explores hundreds of thousands of paths through the system, while analyzers check that the desired properties hold on these paths and selectors focus path exploration on components of interest.

This documentation explains in details how to set up S2E, how to symbolically execute programs, and how to find vulnerabilities in them.
