For better or worse the term ASLR is today in common use to refer to a number of different approaches. Using what has become a generic term allows the implementation to change in the future, without changing the interface (e.g. sysctls, userland tools, etc.). I wish there was a concise, technical comparison of the approaches implemented by different operating systems, but I've unfortunately not found one. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
