I'm new in the field of reverse engineering to detect malicious code in ELF file. I used IDA Pro to retrieve a list of strings in an elf file. But I wonder if IDA can build a graph showing the link between the strings (PSI)?

have you checked out chart xrefsto it creates a graph

enter image description here

or you can use idc

and script a gdl file by getting the xrefsto to a certain address by improvising the script below

auto next,addr;
addr = ScreenEA();
next = MinEA();
next = DnextB(addr,next);
while( next != -1 ) {
Message("xref %x\n" , next);
next = DnextB(addr,next);
