This talk will go over all the protection mechanisms that are available to developers and package maintainers. This includes PIE, RELRO, gcc stack protector, and FORTIFY_SOURCE.

Some tools and techniques for analysis will be presented. The attendee will leave with a better understanding of how protected any given binary actually is.
