Origami – Parse, Analyze, Forge PDF Documents

Hacking Tools

Origami is a Ruby framework designed to parse, analyze, and forge PDF documents. This is NOT a PDF rendering library. It aims at providing a scripting tool to generate and analyze malicious PDF files. As well, it can be used to create on-the-fly customized PDFs, or to inject (evil) code into already existing documents.

PDF Origami

Features:

  • Create PDF documents from scratch.
  • Parse existing documents, modify them and recompile them.
  • Explore documents at the object level, going deep into the document structure, uncompressing PDF object streams and desobfuscating names and strings.
  • High-level operations, such as encryption/decryption, signature, file attachments…
  • A GTK interface to quickly browse into the document contents.

Full Scripts:
Some scripts are provided to help in performing common actions on PDF files. You can contribute more by sending your own scripts to origami(at)security-labs.org.

  • detectjs.rb: search for all JavaScript objects.
  • embed.rb: add an attachment to a PDF file.
  • create-jspdf.rb: add a JavaScript to a PDF file, executed when the document is opened.
  • moebius.rb: transform a PDF to a moebius strip.
  • encrypt.rb: encrypt a PDF file.
