At REcon 2016 was presented a collaborative Reverse Engineering plugin for IDA called Sol[IDA]rity. It looked awesome, so everyone was excited to try it out! But months passed, then years, without any release or source code.
Tired of waiting, IDArling's authors decided they wanted to develop this tool, see for themselves if it was really worth it, while open-sourcing the project from the very beginning. This process proved more difficult than expected.
This presentation aims to explain the plugin functionalities, the reasons behind the choices that were made, the major difficulties encountered, the workarounds that were found, and finally discuss when alternatives like the well-known YaCo plugin are more appropriate.
