What is a GAR file?

A GAR file is a Zip-compressed archive used by Ghidra, an open source software disassembler developed by the National Security Agency (NSA). It contains a project, which may include one or more imported .EXE programs, and is compressed to reduce the size of the project. GAR files are typically used for backing up projects or transferring them to another location.

More Information

Ghidra consists of a suite of tools developed by the Research Directorate in support of the Cybersecurity mission of the NSA. It was used internally for several years, but then made public as open source software in 2019.

The software is designed to breakdown executable programs into assembly code. It is primarily utilized to investigate malware to analyze vulnerabilities they were created to attack.

Ghidra users can import programs into a project for analysis by selecting File → Import File... or by dragging and dropping the program onto the project folder in the Project Manager display. To save a project as a GAR archive in Ghidra, select File → Archive Current Project.... To import a GAR archive in Ghidra, select File → Restore Project....
