Script

We can script the solution using the following python script:

from chepy import Chepy

c = (
    Chepy("/tmp/demo/encoding")
    .load_file()
    .reverse()
    .rot_13()
    .base64_decode()
    .base32_decode()
    .hexdump_to_str()
)
print(c.o)

TAMUCTF xor bruteforce

In this example, we will combine the Chepy class, with a function from chepy extras called xor_bruteforce_multi. The main Chepy class can do single byte xor, but this function can bruteforce any length key.

Script

from chepy import Chepy
from chepy.extras.crypto_extras import xor_bruteforce_multi
import re

chall = "XUBdTFdScw5XCVRGTglJXEpMSFpOQE5AVVxJBRpLT10aYBpIVwlbCVZATl1WTBpaTkBOQFVcSQdH"
c = Chepy(chall).base64_decode()
for match in xor_bruteforce_multi(c.o, min=2, max=2):
    if re.search('gigem', match['out'], re.I):
        print(match)

The xor_bruteforce_multi is not available in the cli.

    .write('art.txt')

m1con mobile CTF - Chepy fork

This example shows how to use the fork method in Chepy. The fork method allows one to call the same methods on all the states that are available. This avoids duplication. The fork method argument structure can be quite complex. Essentially, it is an array of tuples. Each tuple must have the name of the method to call at index 0, followed by a dict of all the arguments that method may require. We then stack these tuples in the order we want them to run.

Steps to take are:

  • Load all 4 base64 encoded strings into chepy
  • base64 decode them
  • decrypt AES

The challenge gives 4 base64 encoded strings, which must be decrypted using AES.

Script

from chepy import Chepy
from pprint import pprint

challs = [
    "VgF6Ndz6kbPdTodjKtleWQ==",
    "/gFXZh1UIMgjwgRt3jxIPb94pIKDmcbiW8AghzmWcFA=",
    "Qqb1yxdZYPpO7IkgcwgY8Viv4lmNw/MQlb128tpcC1n+05vNWKRZrypzDWE3rtuG",
    "5CJD6tajuiEnHEHhlSKBZDxlQ0DEGhbZeLC7hpyzaVo=",
]

c = Chepy(*challs).fork(
    [
        ("base64_decode",),
        (
            "aes_decrypt",
            {"key": "kiwi037900000000", "iv": "itsasecret000000", "hex_iv": False},
        ),
    ]
)
pprint(c.states)
{0: b'handsomerob3709',
 1: b'DI{k3y_t0_ev3ryth!ng}',
 2: b'Congratulations on finishing the challenge! :)',
 3: b'DI{Th15_u53r_15_l0gg3d_1n}'}

Cli

Important

It is important to remember that the array of tuples being passed to the fork method in the cli does not contain any spaces. This is because of BASH will interpret it. Not tested in Windows.
